Grossular (Var: Hessonite), Clinochlore, Diopside
Ala Valley, Lanzo Valley, Sesia-Lanzo zone, Torino Province, Piedmont, Italy
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
An attractive and brilliantly colorful specimen showcasing 3 classic Italian minerals on one beautiful cabinet-sized matrix! The gorgeous major crystal is about 1 cm across, and there are dozens of smaller crystals blanketing most of the display face, with only trivial damage here and there that certainly does not detract. The associated clinochlore and green diopside accentuate the burgundy-red color of these bright and lustrous garnet crystals. 7.5 x 6 x 4 cm
