The Luc Yen District in northern Vietnam's Yenbai province has become a major new locality over the past ~15 years for high-quality spinel and ruby crystals in matrix, as well as chondrodite, pargasite, and other minerals. This is a particularly fine group of spinel-twinned, rich purple-red crystals perched very aesthetically on contrasting marble matrix. The spinel crystals are large with great saturated color, good luster, and good translucency. A choice gem crystal from the Proctor Family Trust Collection.
