Spessartine, Muscovite, Albite
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 10.5 x 9.5 x 4.5 cm
A dramatic CABINET specimen of a LARGE, 4.0 cm, gemmy and lustrous, dark cherry-red, complex spessartine garnet crystal aesthetically set on a large, pearlescent, off-white albite crystal cleavage and nicely accented by lustrous, silver-gray muscovite books. This beauty hails from Shengus, Pakistan and the contacting on the left side of the spessartine is barely noticeable and is certainly not detracting.
