Mineral Specimen #4447    Spessartine Garnet, Albite and Muscovite

Shengus, Gilgit-Skardu Road, Northern Area, Pakistan

A reddish colored Spessartine crystal stands upright from a white Albite crystal with books of Muscovite crystals at its base on one side. The Spessartine crystal has a complex habit with flat, stepped surfaces. In habit and color, it is very similar to those found at a Navagodre, Brazil. The Albite is very nice and consists of one large crystal which on the same side as the Garnet, is partially hollow with smaller sub crystals stacked up in the middle. It is upon which these sub crystals that the Spessartine and Muscovite rest. There is also present a second, much smaller Garnet crystal and a few small black colored Schorl Tourmaline crystals. The Garnet is semi gemmy and has a high luster. The Albite crystals are wel fomed, with rounded corners and edges and a glossy luster. Even without the Garnet, the ALbite would make quite a nice specimen.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable

9.4 x 4.2 x 3.5 cm
The spessartine crystal is 1.8 cm.
