A handsome small cabinet specimen of limey yellow-green and mid to dark chocolate brown Andradite crystals measuring to 5 mm, forming an elongated dome from the skarn deposits in the Ocna de Fier- Dognecea District in Caraş-Severin County, Romania. All the Andradite appears to be composed of an opaque, chocolate coloured original crystal, overgrown by gemmy lime-green Andradite. These sit on a pale green Diopside matrix shot-through with metallic black Magnetite.
