- Vesuvianite (Floater)
- Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
- Miniature, 3.9 x 1.9 x 1.9 cm
A well formed, doubly-terminated vesuvianite crystal "floater" with no visible points of attachment, this vesuvianite crystal exhibits glassy luster and good translucence with a beautiful green color. The basal termination has very minor bruising which is really of little significance, and is a bonus in any case to the top termination which is amazingly equant. This mine, long a source of fine crystals, is now commercially closed.
