Grossular (Var: Rosolite)
Lake Jaco, Sierra de la Cruz, Mun. de Sierra Mojada, Coahuila, Mexico
Miniature, 4.9 x 2.9 x 2.9 cm
Pink garnets are not uncommon from Lake Jaco, but when they get this RED, with some actual translucency to them, they are really rare. This 1.2-cm crystal is dramatically isolated on matrix. It has one clean, natural contact face on one side where it grew against matrix or another crystal.
