striking CABINET-SIZED plate of very gemmy, wine-red spessartine garnets to 8 mm and lustrous, transparent to translucent smokey quartz crystals on feldspar matrix from China. A bit of peripheral edge damage, but definitely not detracting on this excellent piece. All of the major crystals are damage-free. 15.0 x 10.2 x 6.7 cm
