Garnet Var. Demantoid
Belqeys Mountain, near Takab, West Azerbaijan
Toenail, 3.0 x 2.7 x 2.4 cm
A very large example from the find, nearly complete all around (but with a few contacts, where other crystals grew into it, hence the lower price to size ratio). From new finds in a remote part of Iran in late 2013, these premiered at the Tucson show of 2014.
