Cordierite (Old Classic!)
Richmond Soapstone Quarry (Harris Quarry), Richmond, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire, USA
Large Cabinet, 18.8 x 18.3 x 11.0 cm
Root-beer-colored, classic barrel-shaped cordierite crystals to almos t2 inches. Perhaps a piece only a musem could love, but SO significant for this turn-of-the-1900s locality, for both the stellar condition and the overall size of the plate. I have never seen the like for sale.
