A true Canadian classic, this plate of gemmy, vibrant orange-yellow grossular garnet crystals is a stunning display piece. Featuring large, gemmy grossular crystals with top luster and transparency, this old-time Jeffrey mine specimen is a choice display piece and would be a great addition to any collection. The major grossular crystal measures ~1.7 cm across and glows like a cut gemstone. Riley Owen photo.
