Spessartine Garnet
Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.7 x 5.2 cm
282 grams and complete! A textbook crystal of SUPER SHARP faces and edges, with an unusual dark wine-red color. It is pristine and complete all around save only a small contact at one bottom face, with some translucency at the edges but generally dark. However, in a case, it looks wine-red and the sheer size and sharpness of form carry the day for display value.
