Ex. Charles Hansen
A big crystal of deep reddish-brown garnet from the Austrian Alps, trimmed out nicely on a natural matrix base. The crystal measures 4 cm. It has one contacted face. From the well-known California collection of Charles Hansen. Unlike most, it has been carefully excavated from the surrounding matrix and not polished as they so often were in the past from this classic locality.
