Marvelous richly honey-orange colored Grossular Garnet crystals to 11mm attractively grow on a matrix from the famous Jeffrey mine, Quebec, Canada. The Grossular crystals are transparent, gem quality with superb luster and intense orange color. They have sharp rhombic dodecahedral habit with pretty modifications. The specimen has nice contrast and good focal point. For references see the 2013 issue of The Mineralogical Record vol. 44, # 4. In very good condition – some natural imperfections. On acrylic base.

Splendid!
