Spinel, Paragasite, Humite, on Marble - Vietnam

Carved pieces of marble with spinel, paragasite, and humite appeared out of Vietnam a few years ago. I was able to get my hands on some rough and they can be quite attractive, especially under fullwave UV (SW+LW). The spinel really pops under LW, while the others require SW to fluoresce.
