Mineral Specimen #2686    Chrome Grossular Garnet and Chromite on Jackstraw Diopside

Orford Nickel mine, St-Denis-de-Brompton, Sherbrooke County, Quebec, Canada

Ex. A. E. Seaman Museum, Ex. Lance Hampel

Micro crystals of vivid emerald green Grossular are found at two ends of this specimen and on one side. The color is due to the presence of chrome. For many years, this material was labeled as Uvarovite. The Diopside is caledl Jackstraw because its color and habit resemble straw. Intermixed with the Grossular are micro crystals of black Chromite. There is also a band of white Calcite present on one side. The specimen is in fairly good condition but some of the Diopside crystals are not terminated. This specimen would have been mined previous to the mid 1970s.
