Item Description

Beautiful, brilliant, gemmy, dark cherry-red hessonite crystals to 6 mm are richly scattered on the matrix plate covered with books of silvery-green, partially gemmy, clinochlore lamellae on this showy and excellent specimen from a classic Italian locale - Carboneri in the Pellice Valley. A bit of contacting is noted in the center of the piece, along with minimal perphery wear. This remains very highly representative and rich combination material from this noted locale. Ex Wes Parker Collection.
