Grossular - gemmy crystals
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
3.7 x 3.1 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $370
new year 2021

Gem clear Grossular Garnets with the deep orange color that is most desired from this iconic locale. The Jeffrey mine Garnets were found in many different styles, habits and colors, they are regarded as among the greatest examples of the specie worldwide. This piece is in fine condition overall with glassy luster and less striations on faces than we usually see. The crystals are perfectly transparent, the matrix can be seen through them. Most of the crystals are clustered or touching each other on edges which is usually considered to be crowding but these do show good independent development and are not as jammed together as is often the case. A very pretty and affordable miniature gem Garnet specimen.
