A superb cabinet specimen of deep burgundy-red Spessartine Garnets scattered over milky Albite Feldspar and crystals of translucent smoky Quartz. From the Shigar Valley in the Skardu District of Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan, the prime Spessartine crystal is a semi-equant rhombic dodecahedron measuring 2.4 x 2.2 x 17 cm and is perched atop the specimen for maximum impact.  Five other Spessartine crystals between 0.3 and 0.9 cm are scattered across the specimen.  From amongst the Albite protrude light grey Smoky Quartz crystals to 4 cm and books of silvery Muscovite mica.  A magnificent Spessartine from Shigar Valley in Pakistan.
