This large crystal of spessartine garnet practically glows with a captivating, translucent deep red-orange color, with some nice, gemmy, transparent areas. It is a dodecahedral garnet crystal from the historic find in Tanzania, with flat, level crystal faces that form very sharp joins, points and edges. (Especially for its size, the sharpness of this crystal is exceptional.) Its luster is also very good, and with its superb color, excellent sharpness, large size and great aesthetics, this is highly representative of some of the best crystals from the locality.
