I love the rich, marmalade orange color of this 154 carat spessartine garnet, collected in 2008 from the now-closed Nani Hill locality in Tanzania. The 12-sided dodecahedral crystal is sharply formed and shows some nice translucency, with a few gemmy transparent areas. The luster is good, and the crystal faces are sharply defined with crisp edges & joints. The crystal displays well and is virtually complete all the way around.
