Large egg of flashy pleasing mixture of the two color of Idocrase varieties: lime green Vesuvianite and light purple Manganese enriched Vesuvianite (Idocrase). This crystal egg come from World famous Jeffrey Mine in Canada. This gorgeous Egg has some nice polish part and amazing open crystal cavity.
The Jeffrey Mine is a household name among mineral collectors all over the world, famed for its beautiful specimens of Vesuvianite, Grossular Garnet, Pectolite and Prehnite. The fine coloration of the Vesuvianite specimens from Jeffrey Mine stands them out above many other locations. The mine closed in 2010 (the general consensus as there are conflicting reports), and both the open pit and the lower underground levels are known to be flooded. There has been talk about the mine reopening for Asbestos, however it is looking unlikely due to current political considerations.
