6,8×3,8×1,4 cm. ( main garnet 0,6×0,6×0,4 cm.)
Spectacular and rare association from Mina Gerais composed by a group of shiny garnets grown on Mica blades. The yellow green Mica is sparkly and bright, in amazing contrast to the Spessartine garnets which exhibit striking color much better in person than in photos. Ex Umberto Torretta collection.
