Spessartine with Albite.
TM36D8: Spessartine with Albite
From the famous find of gem Spessartine from Lavra do Navegadora we obtained this enormous crystal that shows of all the great features of the find. Intense color, great transparency, a floater, complete and with dissolution marks on its faces. In this piece, just to add to everything else, the brilliance is extraordinary and, even though it is quite thick, the gem quality of the crystal is very visible when lit from the front and spectacular when lit from the rear. There is a little bit of Albite on this powerful specimen.
