Item Description

Gemmy and lustrous, orange AND orange-red spessartine garnets to 5 mm attractively cover the matrix plate of feldspar. The two, pristine, crossed, partially enveloped in spessartines, smoky quartz crystals 5.0 cm really add to the aesthetics of this showy and excllent piece from recent finds at Tongbei, China. The two colors of spessartines on the same piece are not that common from Tongbei and gives the specimen a certain pazzazz.
