Highly recognizable, the Andradite Garnets from Stanley Butte have a unique iridescent, olive-green color and a metallic luster that causes the crystals to virtually glisten. The rhombic dodecahedrons are sharp, intergrown, and have rhombic faces that are about 1.5 cm corner to corner. These well-known Garnets are seldom available from this locality, and certainly not in such quality with such a good aesthetics as this one! It is a superb small cabinet piece.
