Spessartine Garnet
Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Miniature, 4.4 x 4.2 x 4.1 cm
123 grams. Large Miniature! A literal "golf ball," sharp and equant all around. These faces are SHARP! The crystal is much more gemmy and translucent in person, and glows intense fiery orange when backlit strongly. For the size, this is unusually well preserved with just a few small dings and one small chip on one tip. It is otherwise free of damage and amazingly symmetrical.
