These rare old specimens rarely come to light, today, any specimen from the Spotted Tiger mine, today are rare. This mine in the heart of the remote Harts Range, was the largest mica pruducing mine in Australia for many years prior to the second world war. The large mice is liberally laced with deep red garnets, as can be seen in the pics. From my knowledge this combo is unique to this old mine. The garnets have a distinct flattened form, quite unusual. RARE! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars. Ex Bill Kettely collection.
