Spessartine on Galena - classic

Broken Hill, Yancowinna County, New South Wales, Australia
minID: WGJ-VCM
63mm x 37mm x 34mm
$650
A cluster of dark red Spessartine crystals on a Galena matrix showing bright luster. The Garnets are up to 1.8 CM across and most show some distinct separation. The backside of the specimen has breakage where it was removed but the display face is quite good with only minimal bruising seen by loupe. These are remarkable specimens the association of a Garnet family specie intergrown with Lead Sulphide is simply bizarre. This specimen dates from the early 1960's the Garnets are translucent to transparent but overall are an opaque wine red. On a few edges the interiors of the Garnets have a slightly orange color that shows through and may look like damage in photos, in person it does not.
