This thumbnail specimen consists of an extremely intergrown cluster of vesuvianite crystals. There is no matrix material present. The largest vesuvianite crystal reaches 0.7" (1.8cm) in length. At least two of the crystals are double terminated, although some of the termination faces are obscured by other crystals. This specimen shows only minor damage, as a result of being pried from the host rock. This specimen is firmly glued to a clear acrylic base.
