The scintillating sparkle of uvarovite is unparalleled in the mineral world, and the rich green color of these garnets is outstanding (not surprising, since the color comes from chromium, the same coloring agent as in emeralds). The gemmy green crystals on this piece are up to 1 mm in size, and they sit on a dark gray matrix. Hold this piece in sunlight and you will be mesmerized! No damage.
