A fine, lustrous spinel crystal, sitting proudly on the marble matrix, from Loc Yen, Vietnam. A beautiful red spinel octahedron on a starkly contrasting white matrix. This superb full miniature highlights a very sharp, aesthetically placed spinel . We obtained this specimen on our recent visit to the mine in Vietnam. The demand from the Chinese market, means these specimens are becoming very difficult to obtain. The Loc Yen spinels are recognized as equal if not better than the now depleted and hard to access Burmese material. Please compare our prices, and remember our prices are in Australian dollars!!
