Thumbnail, 1.6 x 0.9 x 0.7 cm
A nice combination thumbnail from Eden Mills and the Robert Whitmore Collection. A beautiful, gemmy, reddish-orange grossular garnet is aesthetically perched on lustrous, parallel-growth diopside blades. The garnet is a textbook dodecahedron and has striking points of orange fire. Classic combination material from this very well-known locale.
