Clinochlore & melanite, San Benito Co, CA, USA
description: T 1 5/8" tall. Ex Robert Sielecki collection. This is a fine example of a mineralogical oddity from central California. It is an oddity since it is a rare mineral from an area of the world that gives rise to several unusual mineral species. During early 1998, Robert Lavinsky told me that he felt this piece was better than another that was displayed in the mineral gallery of the Las Angeles County Museum of Natural History. Small melanite crystals are also present on this piece.
