Sharp, gemmy, emerald-green uvarovite garnet crystals really sparkle on matrix on this very rich and fine specimen from the Type Locality in Russia - the Saranovskii Mine in the Urals. The crystals are up to 2 mm and have textbook dodecahedral form. Uvarovite is the uncommon calcium chromium garnet group end-member. Specimens of this quality haven't been available since the early 1990s, when the Fersman Museum of Moscow first brought some to the United States.
