Thumbnail, 2.2 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm
Ex. Kay Robertson
Beautiful and lustrous, this Spessartine is a classic trapezohedron. The deep, fiery red color is excellent, which can be seen with just the right lighting. The crystal form is great, with glassy luster and partial bevels on the edges adding to the aesthetics. All in all, a terrific thumbnail with a small amount of matrix to add balance.
