Poudrette quarry (Demix quarry; Uni-Mix quarry; Desourdy quarry), Mont Saint-Hilaire, Rouville RCM, Monteregie, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.5 x 2.0 cm
Another exceptional serandite, this one with the best luster you can ask for and color that is deeper and more intense than usual, as you can see. It is also somewhat translucent. In person, it is simply GORGEOUS and stands out from the crowd even of pretty good serandites with that extra "oomph" of quality. One of the more elegant miniatures I have handled, as most are just singles at this size range. From the noted miniatures collection of my friend George Holloway. 4 x 3.5 x 2 cm
