Item Description

Opened in 1811, the Achmatovsk Mine one of the most famous skarn deposits of the Urals. As you would expect from a skarn, it is rich in metamorphic minerals, in this case very fine Vesuvianites. Lustrous, well-formed, and terminated, the largest Vesuvianite in this small cabinet specimen is 2.6 cm. The small amount of pseudomorphing is typical, and isn't it fascinating how preferential it is by attacking the same upper corner! Aesthetic and in excellent condition, this is a classic Russian specimen. Old Herb Obodda label. From the collection of East Coast collector, George Elling, specializing in historic minerals of the East Coast and minerals from the development of old European mineralogy.
