Andradite (Var: Demantoid)
Tubussis 22 farm (Tubussis; Tubusis; Tubessis), Karibib District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.1 x 3.1 cm
Two sharp, gemmy and lustrous, leaf-green andradite variety demantoid garnet crystals to 6 mm attractively set in contrasting calc-silicate matrix from recent finds at Tubussis Farm 22 near the Erongo Mountains of Namibia. The large, gem crystal is pristine and the lightly bruised other garnet crystal is certainly not a detraction. Highly representative of the species and locality.
