Description

Here is an old specimen with famous and rare material from a smaller discovery at Sinerechenskoye, near Dalnegorsk.

Crystals of green Quartz combined with Andradite garnet crystals. Typical of this location is the shape and the crystalization on the termination of the quartz crystals. The green color is due to thick hedenbergite inclusions.

You will see that the quartz is perfect/undamaged, and is terminated in both ends. Some of the Andradite in the bottom is damaged.

All these steps are very glossy and sharp.
