Item Description

Beautiful, gemmy, lustrous, well-striated, cinnamon-orange, grossular garnet crystals cover both sides of the matrix on this striking and excellent toenail specimen from the famous and now-closed Jeffrey Mine. Periphery wear on the sides is noted, but has modest impact on the overall quality of this very rich and showy piece. Classic material from this noted locale. Valued at $250-350.
