Description

You are bidding ón a exceeding aesthetic specimen of perfectly developed, sharp and transparent spessartine garnet. The recent discovery of these highly etched but completely terminated spessartine garnets created quite a stir. The sculptural aesthetics, luster and clarity are superb, which are complemented by the lovely wine-red color. It is safe to say these have became very sought-after, and this is an excellent example of this old find. The stepped patterns on this particular piece are amazing. A very aesthetic mini a great condition. On backside and bottom was the rock.
