Description

This material is well known, but good specimen become more and more rare and hard to obtain during the last several years. Also most specimen just show etched, dull or broken crystals. This one features an exposed, sharp terminated, lustrous and pretty large main crystal (16 mm across). The crystals were named as "raspberry-Garnets" - and the color is really this intense red! Contrast to snowy white matrix gives a great visual impact to this very attractive specimen, which is vene better in person.
