Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Yunxiao Co., Zhangzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
Large Cabinet, 18.0 x 13.0 x 4.2 cm
A BIG plate richly covered with gemmy wine-red spessartine garnets, along with a few smoky quartzes and muscovite books. The lustrous garnets measure up to about 0.6 cm. You may have noticed that we have not had many spessartine specimens lately, as the prices have gone up to where they do not seem all that reasonable for what you get. But this very large plate was priced decently enough that we decided to buy it to offer here..18 x 13 x 4.2 cm
