Near Reed Station, Tiburon Peninsula, Marin County, Californa (TYPE LOCALITY)
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 3.2 x 2.5 cm
This specimen is from the type locality in California. It features two elongated, lustrous and translucent crystals of pastel pink, lawsonite, in crystals to 4.0 cm in length. This very rare species, embedded in a mica schist, is a calcium, aluminum silicate. For the size, these are the best I have seen of the species and I think you could say they are "major" by any standard, about an order of magnitude above and beyond others I have seen for sale. Ex.
