Garnet Var Grossular

ID: CC757
Bright raspberry pink Grossular Garnet crystals (to 15mm) are scattered prettily over the etched Calcite and Quartz metamorphic matrix. The crystals are sharply formed and some are intergrown, possessing vitreous luster and a degree of translucency. Good miniature from Mexico! From a find about 10 years ago that we have kept back, this is our first release of the Garnets.
