Grossular - rose-pink Garnet (Ref: 21.1-173)

68mm x 57mm x 41mm
minID: NF1-452
$290
From a relatively new find (2020-21) by Denis Beals; these are larger rose Garnets from an area of the Sierra de las Cruces. This site has produced a few relatively large Garnets embedded in a hard Rhyolite matrix. Noticeably different in habit and look from the previous finds in this region, this piece is an excellent example. A cluster of two main intergrown Grossular crystals show good luster and contrast well with the matrix. Some contacting is noted, there are geometric imprints of other Garnets and some rougher faces, as was true of every piece we examined from the find. Nevertheless, while this is not a piece for perfectionists it is still a fine and colorful Mexican Garnet unlike anything else from the region.
