Superb crystals of Chromian Vesuvianite – the rarest and most desirable color. The perfectly terminated crystals are up to 15 mm in length and have very intense dark emerald-green color due to Chromium. This is extremely rare color and usually the crystals are inosculated in the base. The color is the ultimate green that is possible to find from the mine. The quality is outstanding – gem crystals with very lustrous faces that strongly reflect the light which gives superb sparkling appearance. Overall stunning grass green Vesuvianite from this great now closed mine. For references see the 2013 issue of The Mineralogical Record vol. 44, # 4. In very good condition – some contacts. On acrylic base.
