Grossular Var Hessonite Garnet With Clinochlore

ID: CC2031

Three exquisitely formed burgundy red Grossular crystals to 1.3cm rest on top of a matrix infused with Clinochlore crystals to 4mm. Some prismatic Diopside crystals to 4mm are also in asscociation, with many smaller Garnet crystals are visible on the matrix. The main Garnet crystals exhibit sharp crystal form with bevelled edges and wonderful vitreous lustre. A fine combination example from a well known Italian locality that displays well!
