Intergrown crystals of glassy and gemmy, olive green colored demantoid crystals, to 2 cm in length, form a solid plate on thin matrix. The crystals are elongated, and totally gemmy! They are glassy and transparent, so you can look right through them all, like little jewels. A beautiful and unusual plate from this locale
