ID: CC2712

A choice, highly aesthetic cabinet specimen of toffee-orange Spessartine Garnet crystals covering a matrix of Microcline Feldspar with three large and perfectly terminated Quartz crystals punctuating the specimen. From the Wushan Spessartine Mine at Tongbei in Yunxiao County, China, these specimens first entered the market in 1998 and have since become classics due to their unique character and striking combination of colours.  The Spessartine crystals are typically 3 mm in diameter and are a rich barley-sugar orange with glassy and bright reflective faces. The Quartz crystal are a smoky-light grey, grading to slightly darker grey towards their bases.  The three large Quartz crystals range from 4.0 to 5.5 cm tall and have overgrowths of Spessartine crystals around their lower prism faces.  This is a very fine example of these most sought-after specimens of Spessartine with Quartz from China.
