Jentsch Minerals and Rough Stones (jentschmineral@aol.com) was just beginning to develop a contact-metamorphic deposit near Morogoro, Tanzania where crystals of clinohumite, graphite and other unusual species accompany good octahedral crystals of spinel.
The Afghan clinohumite crystals are lenticular and face-rich, reach 2.5 cm, are gorgeously colored and in a few cases are even gemmy; they rest in matrix of flaky greenish muscovite and/or talc, making for very attractive, mostly thumbnail-size specimens which were in evidence all over Tucson this year.
