Grossular, Vesuvianite
Lake Jaco, Sierra de la Cruz, Mun. de Sierra Mojada, Coahuila, Mexico
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.5 x 4.2 cm
This is not only a mind-blowing huge pink garnet - it has the added distinction of having a 2 cm vesuvianite crystal embedded in one of its faces! The luster is sensational, and the color is a beautiful pink - it is actually slightly TRANSLUCENT, too! There are a few contacts, as is usual for these, but for its size it is in great condition. An old specimen. Ex. Carl Stentz collection.
