Here is a beautifully crystallized museum-sized specimen of grossular garnet, variety hessonite, from the very well-known (and now closed) Jeffrey Mine in Quebec. These crystals are colored a brightly colorful and rich cinnamon-reddish-orange. The gem clear, dodecahedral crystals are very sharply formed and have a brilliant, wet-look, adamantine luster. Specimens of this size and quality are now very hard to find. There are a couple of minor bruises, otherwise the piece is in great condition.
