Humite and Spinel in Marble, Luc Yen District, Viet Nam


This table (or on top of the cabinet) specimen measures 6 x 5 x 10 inches (15 x 13 x 25 cm). If this specimen were named, it would be the “King of the Humites”. The humite occurs as orange, gemmy, fractured barrels to 1 ½ inch diameter by 3 ½ inches long, in white marble. The spinel occurs as lavender, gemmy octahedrals to 1 inch at the girdle. There are also colorless crystals that appear to be sapphire, and deserve a little detective work. A stunner no matter where you put it. Good reaction under long-wave UV.  Item # 2566
