Spinel from Big Maria mountains, Riverside County, California, USA [db_pics/pics/c557a.jpg] Spinel from Big Maria mountains, Riverside County, California, USA [db_pics/pics/c557b.jpg] Spinel from Big Maria mountains, Riverside County, California, USA [db_pics/pics/c557c.jpg] Spinel from Big Maria mountains, Riverside County, California, USA [db_pics/pics/c557d.jpg]

Large 3cm black Spinel crystal on matrix with other smaller Spinel crystals. This is an old specimen from a collection from the 1960s and 70s, and unfortunately there was no  locality information available. I believe it to be from an old, lost locality in Riverside Co. It occurs with Chlorite and appears to have been partially etched from carbonate rock. It rates as a significant California Spinel. Undamaged.
