DescriptionLONGWAVE AND SHORTWAVE WERNERITE AND DIOPSIDE
Grenville, Quebec Province, Canada
Although smaller than the previous lot of Marialite variety: Wernerite, this 5½ x 4 x 3½ -inch (14 x 10.2 x 8.9 cm) specimen is if anything more brilliant. Under longwave UV rays. It displays about 95% Wernerite in the most brilliant yellow color; under shortwave UV it is even perhaps the superior specimen, since it shows one face richly scattered with grains of vivid blue Diopside, and the high Wernerite content shows a strong, bright yellow. Offered at no reserve.
Provenance: ex. Hugh Ronemus Collection
