Spessartine Quartz Schorl Shigar Valley Pakistan Irv Brown specimen

Spessartine on Quartz with Schorl
Shigar Valley, Skardu, Pakistan
9.5 cm


A magnificent large spessartine crystal glows like an ember in this combination piece also featuring a lustrous schorl tourmaline and crystallized quartz. Little spessartine jewels accent the schorl and are included within the quartz itself. The faces of the spessartine are glassy and sharp, with nothing left to be desired. Drastically more three-dimensional in person, this specimen is truly a masterpiece.
