Striking jewel of gem Garnet var. Grossular var. Chromian crystals with black Chromite inclusions from the famous Jeffrey mine, Quebec, Canada. The crystals are very gem and clear up to 1mm. They have very deep and saturated emerald-green color due to Chromium. They are with rhombic dodecahedral sharp crystallization, glassy luster and irresistible color. Some small inclusions of black Chromite are seen too. On the back side the Garnets are almost colorless. Fine thumbnail from this closed mine. This is of truly superior quality – very colorful and gem. For references see the 2013 issue of The Mineralogical Record vol. 44, # 4. In good condition – some outside edge contacts. On acrylic base.

Gorgeous gem-green Garnets!
