Garnet Var Spessartine and Smoky Quartz

ID: CC570

Pretty translucent orange gemmy Spessartine Garnets up to 3mm are scattered across a nicely contrasting white Albite matrix, between large translucent dark grey Smoky Quartz crystals up to 4cm in height. The Quartz has good lustre, and slight cloudiness. Great contrast of colour and presentation in this piece.
