Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 7.0 x 5.5 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda
Superb combination piece featuring classic grey-green books of Clinoclore, topped with dozens of superb, deep cherry red crystals of Chondrodite. The Chondrodites have good to excellent luster, and the largest is about 1.4 cm across. There isn't a Spessartine in the world that wouldn't want the rich cherry-red color of these crystals. The chondrodites can be found on all sides of the specimen. Very rich, from this remote locality.
