Pala Chief Mine, Pala, San Diego County, California, USA
Cabinet, 13.1 x 5.4 x 2.0 cm
Ex. William (Bill) Larson
A very LARGE, rare spodumene crystal from the main dike of the Pala Chief Mine, according to Bill dated sometime before 1960. It is large, complete, and has a pleasing faint green color in person. If you didn't know if was from THIS collection, I admit you would certainly at first think this is an Afghani specimen. But, instead, its an amazing piece from San Diego County, large and gemmy and quite reflective in person from its many facets.
