ID: CC8595
A plate composed entirely of Andradite garnet from the classic locality at Mega Horio on Serifos, Greece. The display surface is entirely enveloped in botryoidal mounds of dodecahedral Andradite crystals with faces of light caramel, edged dark chocolate-brown. Individual Andradite crystals are typically 4 to 6 mm across, but some attain 1 cm. A roughly 4 x 2 cm area at one end is coated with translucent bubbly light grey Chalcedony of fungus-like appearance.  A terrific specimen.
