Grossular Garnet var. Hessonite

Laietto, Condove, Susa Valley, Torino Province, Piedmont, Italy

Another Alpine classic: grossular garnet var. Hessonite with some green Diopside and Clinochlore. Garnet crystals are very lustrous, nearly gem quality. The orange / red color is typical of the alpine localities. This locality has produced some of the most beautiful alpine garnets and even so extremely rare faden garnets. Size: 92 mm x 50 mm x 30 mm

Ref. HE022 – 80€
