Rare material from this very uncommon locality. The Mount Bonnie mine was discovered in the early 1900s, it produced copper, lead, zinc and gold and finally closed around 15 years ago. It has produced only a small number of fine specimens like this one.

XY145 - Grossular - 475€
Jeffrey Quarry, Asbestos, Canada
Size: 5.3 x 2.8 x 1.9 cm
Although these crystals are not so eye-catching as their well known, famous intense orange cousins, they are much rarer and very hard to obtain. This creamy, pale yellow color is very special and unique, should be high ranked for its rarity. The largest crystal shows an exceptional diameter of 21 mm. Ex Heinrich Prager collection.

Size: 8.7 x 8.5 x 4.1 cm
A spectacular cluster of intense green fluorite crystals featuring modified crystal habit. They show excellent translucency - only minor backlight helps to expose a wonderful range of colors, small bits of yellow are also present.
