Sierra de Cruces, Municipio de Sierra Mojada, Coahuila, Mexico

A good sized floater crystal of grossular, with a delicate pink color, brilliant (not very common), with very well defined faces of the dodecahedron. This piece comes from the former J. Astor collection, acquired in 1974 from Bailey Minerals (Ángel Jesús Talabán García, Segovia 1942-Madrid 2007). With labels. A hard-to-find classic.


Size: 3.4 x 2.8 x 2.6 cm.
Found in ca. 1974.

Col. Joan Astor (Barcelona).


 

RM2512   Vesubianite

Sierra de Cruces, Municipio de Sierra Mojada, Coahuila, Mexico

Floating crystal of vesuvianite, defined faces, doubly terminated, with an intense olive color. It is labeled as coming from Lago Jaco, although it must be said that the garnets and vesuvianites attributed to Lago Jaco come from the Sierra de Cruces (incorrectly Sierra de la Cruz or Sierra de las Cruces), Sierra Mojada municipality, Coahuila, Mexico. Acquired by J. Astor from the Geology Museum of Barcelona in the early 70s, with labels.


Size: 2.8 x 2.1 x 1.6 cm.
Found in ca. 1973.

Col. Joan Astor (Barcelona).
