Spessartine, Albite
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 13.9 x 9.0 x 5.8 cm
Gemmy and lustrous, wine-red spessartine garnets to 1.0 cm richly cover the cabinet-sized matrix of contrasting, white albite crystals from recent finds at Shengus, Pakistan. These garnets are exceptionally gemmy for the locale, so this is a highly representative, large specimen for the species and locale. The garnets are very lustrous and these are modern classics.
