Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Yunxiao Co., Zhangzhou Prefecture, Fujian Province, China
Large Cabinet, 19.7 x 12.2 x 4.3 cm
A huge plate of super-gemmy, sparkling spessartine garnets!! This plate is just COVERED with these little gems, and here and there a smoky quartz crystal pokes up amongst them. We have slowed our buying of these because the prices have been rising - but now and then purchase one to put in the auction when we see a decent price, just so everyone has a chance to get one before the mining stops, since they are truly fabulous garnet specimens. This one is a big, flashy showpiece to be sure! 19.7 x 12.2 x 4.3 cm
