Spessartine, Albite
Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Yunxiao Co., Zhangzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 4.2 x 2.5 cm
An architectually superb specimen of very gemmy, lustrous and transparent orange spessartine garnet crystals to 5 mm coating sharp albite crystals from Tongei, China. The form is due to overgrowth upon feldspar crystals. We have posted several Chinese spessartines recently in auction, but this is one of the finest that we have had up. 6.7 x 4.2 x 2.5 cm
