Garnet Var Grossular

ID: CC753
Countless rasberry pink Grossular Garnets invest a white Quartz and Calcite metamorphic matrix. Partially etched to expose more of the Garnet crystals, creating a vivid splash of colour. The Garnets are sharply formed dodecahedrons, with good lustre and the bright pink colour. They measure up to 1cm in width. From a find about 10 years ago, we have kept these back and this is their first release.
