MT Jeanne's pit No. 2, Clear Creek area, Picacho Peak, New Idria District, Diablo Range, San Benito Co., California

Ex. Steve Pullman, Ex. R.W. Thomssen

Small, well formed, peach/pink colored Titanite crystals on a bed of small, druze black Andradite crystals. The Titanite crystals have a good, glossy luster and are semi gemmy. The color may due to the presence of manganese and might be considered to be the variety: Greenovite. The black color of the Andradite is due to the presence of Titanium and is known as Melanite. This is an obscure location from which specimens are seldom available.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: There are a couple of imcomplete Titanite crystals near the edge of the specimen.

6.4 x 3.3 x 0.9 cm
The largest Titanite crystals measure 5.5 mm long.
