Mwami, Karoi (Urungwe; Hurungwe) District, Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.9 x 3.8 cm
This is a huge and darned nearly perfect trapezohedral andradite garnet crystal from the noted collection of Gerald C. Herfurth (1930 - 1998), from Zimbabwe. There is very minor wear on a few edges, hard to detect; in general, this is an extremely dramatic garnet crystal for its size and textbook form! It just impresses with the smmetry, aside from having some color too. 4.2 x 3.9 x 3.8 cm
