Here we have a carpet of very lustrous and wonderfully sparkly, rich deep red-brown almandine-spessartine garnet crystals on matrix. The garnets are opaque and reach about 6 mm diameter. Sits nicely for display without needing a stand. A few scattered dings are noted, which is why this is not a $200 specimen.
