Ex. Dr. Ed David; Martin Zinn
The bright, candy-like garnets from this locality are treasured in old collections, and now hard to obtain on the market. This jewel-like specimen has super luster, intense deep color, and good aesthetics for a miniature-sized example - most are much more sparse in garnet coverage. The crystals reach 6 mm and there is almost no damage, really just a bit at peripheries and one spot in one cluster where a crystal has popped out, leaving a natural contact. It displays very impressively. Ex Ed David and Marty Zinn collections.
