Chrome Grossular Garnet With Diopside
Jeffrey Quarry, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 7.0 x 4.0 cm
This is a very 3-dimensional and colorful specimen with a wonderful deep neon, sparkly green color characteristic of the high chromium content found here in the garnets. The garnet is amassed in a 3-dimensional, thick aggregate of small crystals, individually brilliant and beautiful under a scope but really very small to the eye. There are tiny diopside needles with the garnets by way of accent. THIS IS RARE MATERIAL FROM A NOW CLOSED LOCALITY!
