Spessartine on Quartz

ID: 6482

A superb miniature consisting of lustrous orange-red crystals of spessartine completely coating a smoky quartz crystal. You will notice a small opening at the tip where the quartz shows through, and also at the base. Perfect 360 degree specimen and one of the most aesthetic pieces I have seen from there.
