Ex. California Academy of Sciences, Ex. Steve Pullman, Collected by C. Chesterman, 1944


There are crudely formed, blue/gray colored Sapphire crystals scattered throughout a matrix composed of massive, milky Quartz and intermixed with small black colored Biotite crystals. The specimen is significant in that it is from an old location from which specimens are seldom available (no pictures from the location have been posted on mindat). The mine is now part of one of Ted Turner's ranches.

Condition: Composed of massive material.

Flaws: Essentially massive material.
