Andradite Garnet
Wessels Mine, Kalahari Manganese Fields, South Africa
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.2 x 3.0 cm
A very rare garnet specimen from a small find in the 1980s that produced these waxy-lustered, red andradites in record size crystals for the mine. The large crystal here is 1.2 cm and the form is SHARP! For the location, these remain unequaled to my knowledge and are certainly rarely seen for sale. This is the first I have had in a long time.
