ID: CC20381
A truly historic specimen of Uvarovite Garnet from the Biserskoye Chrome Deposit in the Urals Region of Russia, a locality very rarely seen nowadays, but available during Archduke Stephan’s lifetime.  The Uvarovite crystals range from 1 to 4 mm and are a most attractive, chrome-emerald-green and richly coat a deep tan-mottled mid-grey Chromite matrix.  Many of the Uvarovite crystals are damaged, but this specimen’s true value lies in its rare historic location and provenance.  Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), although this does not have an accompanying Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan card label.  A small Carl Rumpff label dated 1889 is glued to the specimen’s base together with an Archduke Stephan catalogue number, 321/1.  An extremely well-priced ex. Archduke Stephan specimen steeped in mineralogical history.
