Ex. Martin Zinn; Les Presmyk
A mass of solid andradite garnet opens into a vug containing many, translucent, lustrous olive green dodecahedrons, .5 cm across, surrounded by frosted, translucent, colorless quartz crystals, to 4.0 cm in length. Formerly in the collections of Martin Zinn and Les Presmyk. Great color contrast! This is one of the finest examples of the material I know of
