PostPosted: Jan 29, 2017 14:16    Post subject: Re: Collection of Fiebre Verde - Rhodonite (#7500)  

As I was carefully examining this specimen with the loupe, the seller - an obscure Catalan dealer - finally admitted, much to his embarrassment, that the fibrous material in the last image was the result of some poor repair work.

After a closer examination, he finally agreed to tell me the truth - these were just fibrous crystals of cummingtonite.

Thank you Jordi, honesty always pays off!

Thanks for the kind words Jamison!
These well-defined flat crystals with sharp outline and faces have a deep red color that caught my eyes instantly.

As I was carefully examining this specimen with the loupe, the seller - an obscure Catalan dealer - finally admitted, much to his embarrassment, that the fibrous material in the last image was the result of some poor repair work.

After a closer examination, he finally agreed to tell me the truth - these were just fibrous crystals of cummingtonite.

Thank you Jordi, honesty always pays off!


Hi Gérard. I am afraid you lost me . Did Jordi sell you a repaired specimen?????
