A LARGE, 3.7 cm, doubly terminated, sharp crystal of the ULTRA RARE vesuvianite group species, wiluite, from the Type Locality. This lustrous, dark olive-green, FLOATER crystal is pristine. These crystals originally sold cheaply as vesuvianite, until they were determined to be a new species. This is a SUPER piece. Ex. George Elling Collection.
