Description

A miniature consisting of well formed hessonite garnets within a mixed quartz-garnet matrix. From a well known locality to classic Swiss collectors, this material is very sporadically spotted on the market.

Just acquired from a Swiss historical stock with specimens olver 50 years old, I am told that this specimen is possibly dated back to the 60s.
