Beautiful and quite distinctive, this is a 'baby' classic from the Navegadora Mine in Minas Gerais, which is known for these unusual and striking Spessartines. This thumbnail is totally gemmy, has a rich burgundy color, and is quite lustrous. The irregular shape creates the appearance of etching, but it is, in fact, cleanly and completely crystallized. An excellent and attractive thumbnail with style!
