The Ambanja District in Madagascar's Antsiranana Province has recently produced some of the world's finest examples of brilliant green, gemmy demantoid garnet, from a small and poorly-understood deposit. This is a superb large example, featuring dozens of gemmy, lustrous, mint-green crystals to ~9 mm. scattered over contrasting white matrix. A superb and highly aesthetic example of this rare and desirable gem variety of andradite garnet. Ex - Proctor Family Trust Collection.
