Garnet Var Grossular

ID: CC758
Several bright raspberry pink, sharply formed Grossular Garnet crystals (to 6mm) sit atop a Calcite and Quartz metamorphic matrix. The specimen is partially etched to expose these crystals, displaying a attractive vitreous luster. These are from a find about 10 years ago and are the first release of the material we have kept back.
