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 the Rinconada mine in Veracruz state, Mexico.  These larger Grossular crystals sit on a continuous bed of 1 to 2 mm pale avocado green Grossular crystals which add contrast and sparkle to 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.
