Vesuvianite, Grossular
Lake Jaco, Sierra de la Cruz, Mun. de Sierra Mojada, Coahuila, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 4.8 x 4.0 cm
A big, robust, complete-all-around and pristine, olive-brown vesuvianite crystal is elegantly perched atop two, sharp, lustrous, grayish-green grossular garnet crystals and another partially contacted vesuvianite crystal. The highly lustrous vesuvianite measures 3.2 x 3.0 x 2.7 cm and the large grossular is 4.2 cm. It is a very good combination piece. This is definitely an old time specimen.
