Andradite, Hedenbergite
Serifos Island (Seriphos), Cyclade Islands (Cyclades; Kikladhes; Nomos Kikladhon), Kyklades Prefecture, Aegean Islands (Aiyaion) Department, Greece
Miniature, 4.7 x 4.2 x 4.2 cm
A wonderful sculptural quality is exhibited by matte, reddish, dodecahedral andradite crystals, almost 1 cm across, sitting on top of and in the valley of multi-terminated greenish-gray, hedenbergite crystals which emanate from a matrix of massive hedenbergite. This is truly a fine specimen, aesthetically among the best I have seen for the locality. Old material, too!. 4.7 x 4.2 x 4.2 cm
