Andradite Garnet with Hematite var. Iron Rose and Hedenbergite

ID: CC12045
This quite splendid miniature Andradite Garnet with Hematite packs a massive punch for its size, cramming lots of aesthetic and mineralogical interest into a bite-size specimen!  It is from the famous skarn deposit in the south-west of the little island of Serifos, amid the Aegean Sea.  Covering an interesting and vertically aligned fibrous matrix of silky, sage-green Hedenbergite, beautifully crystallised Andradite Garnets form lozenge-shaped crystals with opaque cinnamon face centres and translucent clove-brown edges.  Scattered across the Andradite are around 30 delightful and undamaged clusters of Hematite platelets forming Hematite Roses, each of 4 to 5 mm diameter.  Delightful.
