Small Cabinet, 9.3 x 7.5 x 1.7 cm
A beautiful and sparkly plate richly covered with super-gemmy and lustrous pink grossular garnets to 3 mm and very nicely accented with gemmy, green diopside and white pectolite microcrystals. Pink garnets of this quality and association came out in a one-time find in the late 1990s from the famous and now-closed Jeffrey Mine of Quebec.
