A beautiful tall miniature of lustrous and gemmy, tangerine Spessartine garnet crystals on and surrounding two excellent, deep smoky Quartz crystals from the now classic locality of Tongbei in Yunxiao County, Fujian Province, China. The Smoky Quartz crystals emerge from a plate of creamy pegmatitic granite with the larger of the two standing vertically and measuring 5.5 cm. The Spessartine crystals are typically 2 mm, and sometimes 3 mm, in diameter. A splendid and aesthetic Spessartine garnet and Quartz combination from China.
