For sale is a supberb grossular-andradite garnet from Mali. Featuring sharp green yellow garnets of textbook form. You have probably seen these Mali garnets before, but this is one is exception in its outstanding condition, usually these are quite dinged. The specimen has fine luster, and the color in reality is a shade more green, hard to capture. This specimen came directly from the hand picked collection of Demetrious Pohl, who bought these out of Mali. The usual thing would be that this crystal was broken up in the field by the diggers to extract the small gemmy areas to be sold as faceting rough. Luckily this was was intercepted before this could happen. Ex Paul Melville collection (with label) Ex D. Pohl. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
