For sale is textbook crystal of deep wine-red spessartine garnet, on galena from Broken Hill. The crystal is 19mm wide. Nicely positioned at the apex of the piece the pristine garnet crystal sits proud of the matrix, adding to its attraction. A little known fact is that the garnet on galena association has only ever been found at this one location worldwide!! This is a CLASSIC and VERY SHOWY specimen of outstanding older material, from Broken Hill, the likes of which are rapidly appreciating in value, as nothing has come from this mine since the 1980s. Very nice, Bernie Whyte collection.
