The demantoid garnets from Val Malenco in Northern Italy are true worldwide classics. The garnets here are arguably the best found anywhere on the planet.  This lovely specimen is from an Austrian collection that we purchased and was collected in the 1970’s.  The garnets are approaching 1cm in size and are liberally scattered over the metamorphic matrix.  A fine large cabinet specimen.
