Spessartine Garnet (676 Grams!)
Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 8.0 x 7.0 cm
A 664-gram MONSTER of a crystal, one of the biggest complete crystals we know of from the deposit. It is complete all around and nearly pristine! It is included with fibrous garnet and some black mineral, and has a few spots of attached red muscovite matrix attached to small parts of minor faces, but it is nevertheless overall very equant and symmetric and just plain impressive for a big crystal of garnet.
