Hematite With Andradite Garnet
Wessels Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa
Miniature, 4.8 x 4.5 x 3.8 cm
Andradite garnet here completely coats on all sides, like a drape, the underlaying hematite crystal which has perfect crystallography and now looks like a sparkling red hematite more than anything! That crystal is 2.7 cm tall. Pristine and complete, this is a most unusual display specimen!
