OKP-803

OKP-803       Grossular, Hematite and Pectolite?       Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Québec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  These clear garnets have always been rare and this specimen is exceptional.  The grossulars are water clear gems and cover much of the piece, yet show great separation allowing for nice definition when you look at the crystals.  So often they are grown together and do not provide the desired aesthetics seen in this one.  The piece measures 6.4 x4.6 x 2.1 cm overall.  There are are matrix contacts on the front display face along its top edge (as seen in the second image).  It should be displayed as seen in the first image that puts this contact area (which isn't distracting anyway) along the bottom.  There is no damage to this wonderful piece and some crystallization on the back, as well.  Little black balls of hematite create nice contrasts with the pinkish pectolite? (I think) and the clear garnets.  A very fine mineral specimen!  $600

OKP-584

OKP-584       Prehnite    Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada.  Ex. Dr. Steve Chamberlain collection.  Circ. 1981.  This one is a really rare thing.  It measures 2 x 1.7 x 1.6 cm and is interesting, rare, and aesthetic.  The crystals are quite unique for prehnite... the color is unique for prehnite... the locality is very desirable and seldom produces prehnite, especially in this color.  It originated with Canadian mineral expert Frank Melanson and there is no doubt that it is what-it-is.  Minor edge contact shows two very tiny crystals on one edge missing.  It would be described as damage-free because even more edge issues from removal would be expected.  The crystals are transparent to translucent and extremely sharp in for.  An excellent thumbnail specimen in every regard.  Attractively mounted in a perky box, as seen.    $650
