Spessartine (Garnet) - Navegadora Claim, Brazil.
Approximate Measures: 3 x 2.5 x 2 cm. 22 grams. Navegadora has produced some of my favorite Garnet crystals of all time. The vibrancy of the red color, the extraordinary forms and surface textures, the glassy luster, they have so many amazing attributes. We can see this very distinct etching pattern in some other localities, but none are quite so astonishing as the Navegadora pieces. This one has crystallization on all sides and has top quality color and sharpness.
