- Spessartine Garnet in Mica Schist
- Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
- Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 4.4 x 3.8 cm
This sparkling specimen of mica schist hosts a 1.5 cm garnet of tangerine orange color, starkly and beautifully displayed. It is well exposed already but could, with time and a little pick or sharp metal tool, be exposed further than we have done to make it look even more like a golf ball popping up.
