Excellent crystals of gemmy yellow-brown Andradite are scattered over creamy-white Palygorskite, from the Malenco Valley, Italy. Crystals of Andradite measuring to 6mm show large dodecahedral faces with trapezohedron modifications. A single further crystal of Andradite is on the reverse of the specimen. A neat contrast between the two minerals.
