Garnet Var. Demantoid
Belqeys Mountain, near Takab, West Azerbaijan
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.4 x 2.7 cm
A HUGE crystal! It is among the very largest found, and is very robust. It is contacted on the back and some sides but has an impressive display face. There are a few bruises on it, hence the lower price for one of the few larger crystals in the lot. From new finds in a remote part of Iran in late 2013, these premiered at the Tucson show of 2014.
