Andradite (Var: Demantoid)
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.4 x 2.7 cm
Tubussis 22 farm (Tubussis; Tubusis; Tubessis), Karibib District, Erongo Region, Namibia
A pair of large (1.1 cm) Demantoid crystals nestled nicely in a pocket of matrix. One is horizontal, and the second more tabular crystal stands prominently next to the other. Both have nice luster and a beautiful medium green color. The broadly-stepped faces of the upright tabular crystal are rather unique, and quite attractive. Ex. Charlie Key Collection.
