Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 5.5 x 4.6 cm
Mined in the 1970's, this is a pocket of andradite garnets with platy hematite crystals growing amongst them. An interesting Eastern European association piece of a combo I had not seen before, this was brought out by dealer Ross Lillie (from whom the exact info came) and surely came from a miner's old private collection. 7.2 x 5.5 x 4.6 cm
