Here is a superb specimen of gem quality spessartine garnet that is a rich, highly saturated wine red color that is breathtaking when the crystal is backlit. It is a complete "floater", with no contact points. The entire surface of the crystal is covered with miniature staircase-like, smooth, glassy, stepped growth patterns, with razor sharp edges and corners. Crystals of this size and quality have become increasingly scarce, and prices have risen steadily, as they have already achieved "classic" status.
