This 168 carat spessartine garnet was collected in 2008 from the now-closed Nani Hill locality in Tanzania. The marmalade orange color is very rich on this 12-sided dodecahedral crystal. It is sharply formed and shows good translucency, with some nice 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.
