Tephroite, Willemite
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm
Franklin Mine, Franklin, Franklin Mining District, Sussex Co., New Jersey, USA
A classic but rare association to have from Franklin. The tephroite crystals large, sharp and easily visible against contrasting acicular willemite (to just under 8 mm in size!). Elling and also the noted old dealer John Albanese both noted on their labels that this is a truly superb specimen 9 x 5 x 4.5 cm
