This specimen of spessartine garnet, from the recent find in Tanzania, is a large, walnut-sized pair of twinned crystals. It has some nice, gemmy, transparent areas inside, so you can see into the depths of the crystals. The crystals are sharp dodecahedrons, with flat, level crystal faces that form very sharp joins, points and edges. The color is a deep, vibrant, red-orange that is much better than the typical rusty red found in the largest garnets from this locality. The luster is very good.  There is no damage on the top side of the two crystals.
