Pargasite with Spinel (Ref: LL400)

Twin Lakes Limestone deposit, Lower Twin Lake, Twin Lakes, Fresno Co., California, USA
75mm x 60mm x 30mm
minID: AV6-CH1
$950
Large translucent brown Pargasite crystals associated with blue Spinel. A superb California specimen, it was the best Pargasite (that I saw) from the Chuck Trantham collection, and there is nothing comparable to it on Mindat. The Pargasites are well formed and reach 2.1cm in size, with a band of blue Spinel (including crystals to 4mm) along the bottom, adding good color contrast. Chuck valued this at $750 back in 1983, significantly more than others in his collection that I saw, indicating he too rated this one highly. His label shows a locality of 'Locality No. 2, Twin Lakes area, near Lake Shore, Fresno Co., California' and indicates it was collected in August of 1983.
