This attractive specimen of BABINGTONITE comes from Qiaojia, Qiaojia County, Zhaotong Prefecture in Yunnan, China. When babingtonite was found here in 2005, it set the bar at a new height for size and perfection of crystals. Before this, the best babingtonites in the world came from my backyard, here in Western Massachusetts. Over the years I collected quite a few really great specimens, but when the Chinese material appeared, I was floored and jealous. I picked up this fine specimen at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show from one of the Chinese dealers who was set up in the Inn Suites (Tucson City Center Hotel).
