Spessartine, Muscovite, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Little Three Mine (Little 3), Ramona District, San Diego Co., California, USA
Thumbnail, 2.2 x 1.5 x 1.0 cm
This is a fantastic combination piece from one of the most famous, but unfortunately small, mining districts in the US. The lovely Spessartine sitting by the Muscovite blades, all on the white Cleavelandite, truly makes this a delicate and superb thumbnail. Note the size - small, but sharp as heck! 2.2 x 1.5 x 1 cm
