Andradite, Hedenbergite
Serifos Island (Seriphos), Cyclade Islands (Cyclades; Kikladhes; Nomos Kikladhon), Kyklades Prefecture, Aegean Islands (Aiyaion) Department, Greece
Cabinet, 9.4 x 8.5 x 7.0 cm
A dramatic and showy specimen of lustrous, rust-brown andradite crystals to 1.0 perched on columnar, green hedenbergite from Seriphos Island, Greece. Garnets are very rare for the locale, and this is Old and classic material, no longer available. There are a few broken crystals mixed in with the dozens of perfect ones, but this minor bit of damage is certainly not detracting to this impressive specimen. 9.4 x 8.5 x 7.0 cm
