GROSSULAR GARNET var HESSONITECanada » Jeffrey Mine
4.5cm x 4.3cm x 2.2cm
A large central wine coloured gemmy crystal of Hessonite Garnet displaying very lustrous faces with faint growth pattens. A stunning feature of the specimen from the Jeffrey Mine, Quebec, Canada. The major crystals shows excellent development of the dodecahedral faces, nicely truncated by a three armed trapezohedron. The main crystal is surrounded by a large number of just as gemmy Hessonite Garnet crystals. A fine specimen from the mine.
