Description

An outstanding quality demantoid from the legendary Sferlun mine, Italy. The specimen is an excellent thumbnail featuring a deep apple green garnet, very lustrous and with partial transparency. The garnet remarkably contrasts with the white asbestos fibers, which make the matrix of this specimen. The crystal is so transparent that from some faces the internal fibers are visible.

Very sought-after and rare in this quality from Sferlun. This specimen is by far the very best we ever had for sale.
