Garnet Var Grossular

ID: CC756
A single bright raspberry pink Grossular Garnet crystal (to 12mm), slightly translucent with a darker core dominates a Quartz and Calcite metamorphic matrix. The Garnet is sharply formed dodecahedron with sub-vitreous luster. A fine miniature display specimen from Mexico! This is our first release of the material we have kept back from a find about 10 years ago.
