A wonderful large, gemmy, vibrant-orange 3.7 cm crystal of gem grossular garnet var. 'hessonite' from Barang-Turghao, Bajaur Agency, Federally Administered Tribal Areas, Pakistan. While less well-known that say the Jeffrey Mine in Quebec or recent finds in Tanzania, Pakistan has produced some world-class gem grossular crystals, and this is an exceptional crystal for both the species and the locality. Great color and sharp, lustrous faces. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
