RM2832   Andradite-Grossular

Distrito de Pampa Blanca, Castrovirreyna, Huancavelica, Perú

Good size and rich aggregate of andradite-grosularia crystals with an intense brown color on the surface, but with color zoning, clearer inside. The exterior of the sample shows a dark reddish-brown tone with very well defined trapezohedral crystals, but inside the crystals have a very aesthetic golden tone. Multi-layered bands ranging from reddish brown to green to gold are shown in the fracture zones of the piece. For this reason we prefer to label it as the andradite-grossular series.

Size: 11 x 9.5 x 4.5 cm.
Main crystal: 15 mm.
Found in 2020.
