A very large, fine and sharp Spessartine contrasts well with the greenish Mica matrix. Very few good matrix specimens have been found at Loliano. This example is is exceptional for the quality and size (4.3 CM) of the crystal which has good translucence and glassy faces with fine striations. Spessartine of such size are almost unheard of and Loliando is now regarded as a world class locale unrivaled for these. Esthetic, and choice with only very minor contacts seen with magnification this displays well from almost any angle.
