For sale is a quite uncommon demantoid garnet on calc silica, from Bundaleer area, S. Aust. Demantoid (green) garnet which is a variety of andradite, can be considered very hard to come by in Australian locations. This old Sth Aust location, is one of the very few areas in Australia to have produced collector quality specimens, and that was a long time ago. Featuring fine well formed crystals of garnet with a distinctive olive green color, the crystals are scattered abundantly over large areas of the piece. The matrix is shot thru with garnet crystals some of quite a decent size! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars. Old material rarely seen today, outside of Sth Australia.
