I first collected these black vesuvianites from the Bill Waley Indian Allotment tungsten mine in Drum Valley, CA in 1972. They were in a cave type area in the mine, where the calcite had been dissolved away leaving the vesuvianite.   I wrote the location up in "California Geology", October 1974. Vol. 27, Article title: Loellingite and Black Vesuvianite from Tulare county, California. Pages 224-226. California Div. of Mines and Geology publication.  I long since sold my share.    My collecting partner, at the time, has had these stashed away ever since.  He recently found them in his storage and asked me to put them on the site, so here they are.  Mostly of interest as an odd color, and somewhat strange form for vesuvianite.  A one time find, nothing is left of these, and rare occurrence for vesuvianite.   It has been suggested that these might be wiluite...I compared the x-ray diffraction pattern I took of these, and it appears to be closer to vesuvianite, although the diffraction pattern for wiluite and vesuvianite are very close in appearance.
