SOLD Spessartine Garnet (Floater with complex crystal form)
Navegadora Mine, Penha do Norte, Conseheiro Pena, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.6 x 4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $0

From the famous find of more than 20 years ago, this is a very good example of deep blood-red Spessartine. It is fully crystallized on all sides ("floater") and shows incredible geometric growth steps of several types. This one is as close to perfect as I have seen, some areas of chipping can be found with magnification but not easilly seen by naked eye. Very good value!
