Item Description

Gorgeous combination of deep-red, lustrous Andradites, mirror-like Hematites, and gem-clear Calcites. The best Hematite has a superb, lustrous face 1 x 1 cm, and it is draped incredibly by a layer of Garnets, like a shawl. The largest of the gemmy Calcites is about 1.3 cm long and sits right in front of the largest and best Hematite. All draped, in part, by all these great 1-2 mm Andradites. Just a well-balanced combination piece, with all the parts being equally good.
