Spessartine Garnet in Mica Schist
Loliondo, near Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Cabinet, 9.7 x 9.3 x 4.0 cm
This handsized specimen features a pocket atop with a choice, gemmy, very transparent and colorful crystal measuring 1.5 cm in a protected pocket. It needs a trim into a miniature, and then I think it will be considerably more valuable. But in the interest of time and cash flow, we have offered as is, before trimming, at a lower price - and you can frankly do the work yourself with a dremel tool or small excavating tool. Its quite fun, really, to sit and work these specimens out!
