Grossular Garnet

ID: CC851
Raspberry pink Grossular Garnets grow to 1cm in width and invest a white Quartz and Calcite metamorphic matrix. Partially etched to expose more of the sharply formed Grossular dodecahedrons, with a bright vitreous lustre and a bright and deep pink colour - the smaller crystals being gem throughout. We are releasing these now after holding them back for 10 years.
