Item Description

Recently, the various gem tracts around Luc Yen have produced some impressive Spinel crystals. These are easily some of the largest individual Spinel crystals to come out of any locality. This pieces hosts semi-stacked group of lustrous, translucent, sharp octahedral crystals of Spinel with a bit of attached limestone. The color is a wonderful red hue and actually shows good internal gemminess when backlit! This locality has the potential to produce some SUPERB Spinels. NO damage that I can see, excellent quality all around. Valued at $2,000 for size, color and quality. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
