ID: CC8040
A stunning naturally etched light Burgundy red Spessartine Garnet on Quartz from the Navegadora Claim at Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil, within the AimorĂ©s pegmatite district.  The etched morphology produces a reticulated effect amongst the complexity of the Spessartine crystals faces.  The crystal has a great lustre and grades from gemmy to translucent, the latter being more a function of the thickness rather than the quality of the crystal.  The milky white Quartz matrix is also attractive, displaying a similar amount of etching.  Both Spessartine and Quartz have a bright glassy lustre and once back-lit the Spessartine glows a magnificent pigeon blood red.
