Grossular (gemmy yellow garnet)
stock #11.1-W01
Handan Prefecture
Hubei, China
7 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $440


A pure mass of gemmy lustrous yellow garnets crystals densely packed together with no matrix. This is a recent find (2010)from the area that has in the past produced both grossular and vesuvianite, but not in this form! This is the best example I have seen so far. Showy glass-like sparkling crystals up to 1.3 cm (average about 4-7 mm) are jammed together as an intergrown mass. Most crystals are complete without damage but several have signs of contacting and a few small points show chipping with magnification. By naked eye this displays very well.
