Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 4.4 x 2.7 cm
Outokumpu Cu-Co-Zn-Ni-Ag-Au ore field, Ita-Suomen Laani, Finland
This is a specimen of very rare FINNISH uvarovite garnet! If you have seen any uvarovites lately, they have probably been the Russian ones that are still coming out. But though pretty, they are nothing more than druses of microcrystals - the individual crystals too small to be seen by the naked eye. This specimen has four crystals measuring to 0.5 cm (5 mm) across. A rare locality piece. Ex. A.E. Seaman Museum.
