Description

 Dark brown massive garnet of the andradite-grossular series with ingrown crystals up to 2.3 cm. The Hohe Waid locality is famous for being massive garnet rock, but pieces with nice big crystals/crystal surfaces are very rare. And don't forget it comes from a country which is generally very poor in garnets.
