Description

Lovely rodingite miniature hosting a few blocky crystals of dark olive green-brown vesuvianite. The faces are well-developed, in mint conditions, and with a great lustre. Vesuvianites lay on a bed of chloritoid, which confirms the most classic paragenesis.

From the rodingites of Val di Susa, this is very good specimen from there. Straight out of my collection!
