Description

You are looking at a superb miniatures specimen of grown together in parallel crystals of vesuvianite. The mirror bright crystals are superb defined, razor sharp and partly gemmy as well. The few that are purple, tend to be lavender colored and mixed with green tones. It is not pristine, but is nearly so, and certainly on the major crystals where it matters.
