Item #10533
Spessartine on Quartz
Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Fujian Province, China

THese garnet specimens from China are guaranteed to be classics. Nowhere else I can think of is producing anything similar. This specimen is a wonderful association of smokey quartz feldspar and spessartine. The two largest garnets are aesthetically perched at the top of quartz points. The piece sits proudly as shown and measures 5.5 x4.3 x 3.5 cm. No damage.
