SPINEL, Monroe, Orange County, New York.

SPINEL, a very large, octahedral crystal. 

Monroe, Orange County, New York.

Measures 3-3/8 x 2-1/2 x 2-3/8 inches.

This is specimen 234.6 from the New York State Museum. It was sold to them by George F. Kunz in 1886 and is accompanied by an old hand-lettered label. The tip has been repaired using the broken fragments, which is a most unusual but correct museum procedure. Normally, collectors would not like to see the evidence of the repair, however, in certain circumstances that is considered deception.

Price $7,500
