Grossular -c lassic locale
stock #14.1-215
Asbest, Sverdlovskaya Oblast
Urals Region, Russia
6 x 5.7 x 3.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $220
Late Summer 2018

A rich mass of Grossular Garnets on a Rodingite matrix from the famed Asbest deposit in the Urals. Some of the Grossular are gemmy and have good color as well. These are always being compared with the better known deposits in the town of Asbestos in Canada, and there are many similarities between the two. Perhaps the most striking difference is that there are very few fine Grossular from Asbest in collections, there are quite rare on the market and usually very small. This is super specimen for the locale. in great condition very lustrous and more impressive in person.
