Demantoid Garnet
Malenco Valley, Sondrio Province, Lombardy, Italy
Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 4.8 x 2.5 cm
A superb, bright, display-quality example of this old classic! Demantoids on matrix are among the rarest of garnets, and these bright and gemmy crystals from Val Malenco are certainly the most desirable of the variety. This is a large specimen with excellent coverage and more importantly crystals of high luster and deep green color. It is very difficult to find such pieces on the market
