Description

Well sized and fine, classic example of Seriphos andradite with brown, dodecahedral crystals on gray-green hedenbergite. The crystals are sharp and show light colored cores against darker edges on their faces. The piece is in excellent condition as seen at the photos. I bought it back in 2010 in from the German collector who found those. A fine and rich Greek garnet specimen to own!
