Item Description

Classic, gemmy and lustrous, reddish-orange grossular garnet dodecahedrons are nicely clustered on both sides and the top of the matrix of solid, well crystallized vesuvianite crystals. The large garnet is 1.0 cm across. A bit of bruising is noted, but this remains a fine and showy, older, two-sided combination example of the species and famous Eden Mills locale. Ex Robert Whitmore Collection.
