Ialamitana, Sahanivotry Commune, Antsirabe 2 District, Vakinankaratra Region, Antananarivo Province, Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 6.3 x 6.1 cm
This is not Pakistani, but a huge and fine Madagascar garnet - almost 2.5 cm across! It has super luster, sharp faces and deep burgundy color. And, it is isolated right in the top-middle of the contrasting matrix, so it shows very dramatically. This super garnet is out of the garnet collection of Bill Larson.
