This miniature is a great example of Uvarovite Garnet from the copper-zinc-cobalt mines in the Outokumpu mining district of south-eastern Finland.  An approximately 1 x 1 x 1 cm equant dodecahedron (12 sided) Uvarovite crystal of opaque deep bottle green is partly embedded in a grey and milky matrix of Quartz and mixed metallic sulphides.  When back lit the edges of the Uvarovite give flashes bright electric chrome green.  Uvarovite is one of the green members of the Garnet Group, coloured by the presence of chromium.  A lovely example of Uvarovite from Finland.
