A great idea to show these two colours of vesuvianite from that classic locality together in one photo, really nice!

Great to see a celestine from a very old classic locality! This is the first celestine from Ohio that I have seen from the old Maumee Quarry.

Most of the Ohio celestines I commonly see for sale are from the Pugh Quarry, Lime City Quarry, Stoneco Portage Quarry or from the White Rock Quarry in Clay Center.

Hi Les,
