Spessartine Garnet
Loliando, Tanzania
Thumbnail, approx 1.3 cm
A killer thumbnail: super-equant, razor-sharp, and among the most gemmy in the lot at this size range! This one is on the pure mandarin orange end of the red-orange spectrum of color here. In person it is totally transparent! This is just hard to convey in a photo, given the gemminess and color saturation, and still show all the sharp faces.
