Spessartine Garnets on Smoky Quartz from Wushan Mine, Tongbei, China
Dimension: 12cm x 7.3cm x 4cm
Locality: Wushan Spessartine Mine, Tongbei, Fujian Province, China
A striking plate of Smoky Quartz crystals completely encrusted with gemmy, lustrous crystals of Spessartine Garnet in the classic mandarin orange to reddish orange color. This is a piece from the old mine of Wushan which has been kept by my father for decades. Sadly the mine is so exhausted now and specimens of this size and quality simply do not exist. Do not miss this gracefully composed masterpiece. In excellent condition, showy 360 degree.
