For sale is a group of cobalt spinel on albite, from Ah Phu, Loc Yen, Vietnam. We obtained this piece on a recent visit to Vietnam, and this was the largest specimen on quality we saw there, decent sized specimen are just not often found. The lustrous (not seen clearly in the pics)crystals on this exceptionally fine specimen, cover a large area of the specimen and the off white matrix gives a great contrast. Interestingly, spinel is almost exclusively found associated with marble or calcite, these specimen which sit on albite are a very rare exception! No damage.
