Corundum pseudomorph after spinel – Mahenge, Morogroro, Tanzania


In a very interesting new find from September 2021, corundum pseudomorphic to spinel was discovered in Tanzania and presented at the Tucson Gem Show 2022. This 3/4" crystal shows despite the transformation still the raspberry color of the spinel.

A mineralogical rarity with good aesthetics.

Shown in the Tucson 2022 gem show report ( Lapis 03/22)
