Spessartine Garnet in Mica Schist
Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Toenail, 3.0 x 2.5 x 2.3 cm

This "toenail"-sized cluster is stunning tangerine-orange color, translucent, and is lustrous and complete all around. It sits upon a small pedestal of natural matrix. A holdover from the earlier finds, this is an unusual piece in that it is a cluster whereas most crystals from here occurred as singles.
