A beautiful crystal of vesuvianite, dark brown but transparent enough to show the crystals of probable wollastonite on which it grew. View on "C". It is also rich in faces, as shown in the second child photo, according to my interpetation. Ex Livio Carloni collection and now in the collection of Gianfranco Ciccolini, author of the photo.
