Miniature, 4.4 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Estrie, Quebec, Canada

A totally gemmy, 3-dimensional, 1.6-cm garnet crystal crowns this beautiful plate from the classic, now closed locale. The specimen literally formed as a "plate," coating a wall in situ. So it is minutely crystallized around the back, though it looks flat there. The brightness of the piece, and the size of the garnets, give it a good impact in a case. From an old French Canadian collection, being sold off at Tucson 2011. Joe Budd photos
