Glassy and gemmy, this limpid, grossular dodecahedron exhibits a wonderful, light cinnamon color. Truly beautiful! This was one of the prides of the collection, and is truly a gemmy jewel with more clarity and "presence" than most single crystals of this sort. It stands out in a crowd, in other words. The combination of qualities are what makes it a competitive, high level thumbnail, rather than any one quality alone.
