Spessartine, Loliondo, Tanzania
description: T 2 3/8" ac. I bought it from Dirk Kristen of Johannesburg in late 2009. More pieces were on the market at around this time. This piece consist of two bright orange crystals of spessartine on a relatively well proportioned matrix. Both spessartine crystals are complete and undamaged with a fair luster. They are translucent without any obvious veils. Although this is only a small piece, I prefer it to thousands of others that briefly flooded the market which almost always had a somewhat "rocky" and "unclean" general appearance about them.
