Item Description

Three richly colored deep-green partially gemmy Dematoids on matrix. The largest is 1.2 cm, and the luster on all of them is excellent. There is some dinging, but it detracts little from the appearance. The dark green color and good luster carry the day. A very good Demantoid Garnet from the heyday of mining here, cherrypicked by Charlie over several decades of looking. Crystals of this size on matrix are rare and valued highly.
