Andradite Garnet

Mineral: Andradite Garnet
Location: Andradite Garnet, Bendougou, Arrondissement Diako, Cercle de Bafoulabé, Kayes Region, Mali

Three dark brown andradite crystals stand on this matrix (they look black except with close examination under strong light). The crystals dodecahedral with trapezohedral modifications – they are sharp with good lustre. In very good condition, the middle crystal is incomplete at the back, and there is minor chipping on the piece. These crystals stand out nicely, and the modifcations are great.
