ID: CC6809
Crystals of translucent-gemmy apple-green to almost colourless Grossular Garnet, measuring to 4 mm+, richly cover the top surface of this fabulous platy specimen from Cofre de Perote in Veracruz state, Mexico and most probably from the Rinconada mine.  The larger Grossular crystals sit on a continuous bed of 1 to 2 mm pale avocado green Grossular crystals which add contrast and sparkle across the display face.  The base is richly covered with Grossular Garnets of a more opaque, creamy-lemon and are associated with lath-like white crystals of an undefined mineral.  A superb and aesthetic miniature specimen from the Cofre de Perote district.
