Andradite v. Demantoid with Quartz and Diopside
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Arusha Region, Tanzania
5.1 x 3.1 x 2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $485
Winter 2016-17

A really cute, bright specimen covered in sharp, gem grade Demantoid Garnets offset by a Quartz crystal. Finds of these Garnets have been sporadic and very few have had this sculptural form, grown on a Diopside base. The garnets fully cover the matrix on all sides, the smallest are a yellow color and the largest as seen are the Demantoid green. In great condition, damage-free and very lustrous, this is much better in person.
