A RARE, superb, old-time, classic from Magnet Cove, Arkansas of a PRISTINE, FLOATER, sharply tetragonal vesuvianite crystal. Most of this super crystal is a low-luster tan color, but parts of it are a lustrous, translucent, olive-green. I have never seen another of this quality. Most vesuvianites from this location are heavily etched. This looks carved, as if from a textbook drawing on the species crysatllography. Value?
