Spessartine, Smoky Quartz
Wushan Mine, Fujian Province, China
6.7 x 2.5 x 2.4 cm.
A very pretty specimen of gemmy Spessartine Garnet crystals on a double-terminated Smoky Quartz crystal from Fujian, China. This unique specimen features a rarely seen DT Quartz crystal (see the last three photos) and is the only specimen of this material that I’ve seen that exhibits both orange and RED Garnet crystals. From my personal collection, acquired from the retired Canadian dealer Hawthorneden in 2003.
