||Grossular Garnet (chromian var. Tsavorite)
Mine Lac dAmiante (Black Lake Mine), Megantic County
6 x 4.6 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Electric emerald green crystals to 5mm densly cover the matrix of this fine Canadian specimen. Chrome Grossular or Tsavorite Garnets are rare in general and even rarer in sizable specimens. This one is brilliant with the best deep emerald color and glasslike luster. Most crystals are perfect and some show phantoms of a deeper green core in a lighter green exterior.
