ID: CC19139
A beautiful miniature of Almandine garnet crystals richly covering a plate of massive Clinochlore and interspersed with fine crystallised tabular Clinochlore.  This most attractive specimen is from Zlatoust in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia and although labelled Almandine, may well be within the Andradite-Grossular garnet series.  The highly lustrous dodecahedral crystals are a deep reddish-clove-brown, measuring to over 1 cm across.  The many large crystals are surrounded by tens of micro-garnet crystals and blocky, mica-like books of deep bottle green Clinochlore.  A very showy and interesting specimen.
