Helvite with Spessartine
Tongbei, Yunxiao County, Zhangzhou Prefecture
8.8 x 7 CM (cabinet)
An exceptionally fine Helvite with great form, color and presentation. The largest crystal is 2.5 CM in diameter, all are in undamaged condition and have the most desirable red to yellow color. The sprinkling of bright red garnets adds an extra sparkle. The location of Tongbei has produced the best Helvites ever seen, and now the location seems to be near the end. These are already modern classics and this specimen is very far above the average with super strong esthetics.
