Andradite (Var: Demantoid)
Tubussis 22 farm (Tubussis; Tubusis; Tubessis), Karibib District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 4.4 x 3.1 cm
Three richly colored, deep-green, partially gemmy Dematoid crystals on matrix. The largest is 1.2 cm, and the luster on all of them is excellent. A very good Demantoid Garnet from the heyday of mining here, hand-picked by Charlie over several decades of looking. Crystals of this size on matrix are rare and valued highly. Ex. Charlie Key.
