Andradite Var. Demantoid Garnet With Andradite
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 3.2 3.2 cm
Antetezambato, Ambanja District, Diana Region, Antsiranana Province, Madagascar
Two, discrete, glassy and gemmy, olive-green crystals of demantoid, to 1 cm, are exquisitely perched on a matrix of metasomatized garnet. The small crystals you see, I believe are little andradites in association. Elegant and fine representative example!
