Garnet Var. Demantoid
Belqeys Mountain, near Takab, West Azerbaijan
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.6 x 3.5 cm
A ridiculously huge crystal from new finds here, in a remote part of Iran in late 2013. It is big, impressive, and just plain GREEN. It is nearly complete all around, though it has a few contacts where it grew against other crystals. These premiered at the Tucson show of 2014.
