The Tongbei area in Fujian Province, China, has become a household name in the mineral collecting world due to it's fantastic spessartine garnet and smoky quartz specimens which have come out over the past ~20 years. Unfortunately now the locality is essentially done, and fine specimens like this large group of spessartine-encrusted quartz crystals are fast becoming Chinese classics. This piece has great aesthetics and the way the spessartines are sprinkled on the smoky quartz faces is very aesthetic. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
