GARNET var. ANDRADITE var. MELANITE, FELDSPAR PSEUDOMORPH

Arrondissement Diakon, Commune Diakon, Cercle de Bafoulabe, Kayes Region, Mali
52mm x 34mm x 22mm
$285
Very unusual specimen of Garnet var. Andradite var. Melanite crystals nestled attractively on Feldspar pseudomorph with Epidote from Kayes Region, Mali. The dominant 23mm Melanite crystal decorates elongated hexagonal crystal completely pseudomorphed by white Feldspar. It is not clear what minerals was the original crystal. The Melanites are black with perfect razor-sharp rhombic dodecahedral habit and strong luster. They have pretty beveled edges. Above the Feldspar are seen green Epidote crystals.  The specimen displays beautifully all over 360 degree. In very good condition – some small contacts and nicks. On acrylic base., Superb offbeat combo!
Data last checked on 1st Dec 2021 - specimen may no longer be available
