These spessartine and smoky quartz specimens from the Tongbei area of Fujian Province, China became instant sensations when they first started appearing at shows about 15 years ago. Unfortunately the locality is essentially closed now as the main locality belongs to a wealthy Chinese politician who has expanded his vacation estate there. An aesthetic Chinese classic with bright orange spessartine garnet crystals covering large, terminated smoky quartz crystals.
