Description

A large Almandine-Spessartine in Pegmatite matrix from an unknown location. I had to add the location here. In fact the crystal is undamaged since the front side is perfect and the rear side i covered with mica. This is a very special piece once for the location and for the size of the crystal.

Please watch the video in HD to see the whole piece!!
