Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Yunxiao Co., Zhangzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
Large Cabinet, 25.0 x 14.0 x 6.0 cm
Super-bright, gemmy spessartines cover the face of this huge specimen, but with a bit of space in between them so they are attractively isolated and not "massed," and are nicely contrasted against the greenish matrix. The spessartines are not large - they measure to about 0.4 cm - but this specimen isn't about big crystals - it's about FLASH, and that it has in spades! Scattered amongst the spessartines are sharp, lustrous little smokies. There is also some arsenopyrite and fluorite to add interest. 25 x 14 x 6 cm
