Tremolite - Merelani

Fine quality Tremolite has been coming out of the Merelani Mines for the past few years.  Typically I would see a few splintery crystals at a time mixed in with parcels of Diopside. The crystals had exceptional color, but were more often than not without a good termination.  The below specimens are from a recent find, all with the same great color but amazingly, nearly all have a perfect flat termination, and most have excellent transparency.
