Description

A deep green uvarovite crystal perched on mixed massive sulphide matrix (mostly pyrite and chalcopyrite). Garnet features growth patterns, mostly triangular, and has a very good lustre for the specie. 

Several peripheral bruises, with three prominent faces in good conditions, which I would name the main display face. Keep in mind that the vast majority of these specimens come out through mechanical cleaning and preparation.

A good, representative specimen from this sought-after Finnish locale.
