Item Description

Deep green to emerald green, this translucent crystal of Andradite Garnet is 2.2 cm long. It is a kilelr for the locality, from Charlie Key's choice collection of worldwide thumbnails! This euhedral crystal has well-formed, complex faces, and is a very good example of a Demantoid Garnet thumbnail from Iran. The intensity of the emerald-green portions of the crystal is quite eye-catching, and nearly unique for this locality. this is quite large for a single crystal from here, in good condition.
