ID: CC16793
A dome of Andradite garnet encloses an underlying matrix of dark olive-green Hedenbergite from the world famous locality at Mega Horio on Serifos, Greece. The individual dodecahedral Andradite crystals are typically 4 to 7 mm across, with orangey-tan faces and burnt toffee-brown edges, making for a most attractive specimen.   A small, roughly 3.5 x 1 cm area adjacent to the base is partly coated with translucent light grey Chalcedony.  Where a 1.5 x 1 cm area of the garnet has been naturally broken, slightly off mid-centre, a number of more gemmy Andradite crystals are visible.  A great Andradite from Mega Horio on the island of Serifos.
