Description

This is a super aesthetic specimen with excellent defined and deep cognac-coloured crystals of  Hessonite. From the now defunct Jeffrey Mine, this is a major garnet specimen with top colour, riveting luster, and large gemmy crystals to 1,2 cm. The colour is fantastic, really top rate, and the gemminess is such that you can see through all crystals to their cores and the small bit of underlaying matrix. The crystals cover a thin matrix plate which also partly crystallized on its backside. The display face is totally pristine and complete, and the only damage is simply the peripheral attachments around the rim of the piece. This is a specimen for highest aesthetic demands.
