- Spessartine Garnet
- Toenail, 2.8 x 2.4 x 2.0 cm
- Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
A fat, 1-inch-plus glowing orange crystal with just incredible color marred by only the most minute inclusions (unusual for the size) ! It is contacted on the bottom, and so is about 4/5 complete, or this would be a $7500 crystal for the size and color intensity. Still, it displays magnificently and you can mount it upright at an angle to show all the depth of field you could want. 28 grams.
