A champagne-coloured grossular crystal from the Steve Szilard collection. This is a rare hue for grossular from any locality, but Jeffrey Mine grossulars occasionally were quite lightly-coloured and even colourless. This crystal is a sharp trapezohedron with dodecahedral faces – it has brilliant lustre. In excellent condition, no damage to the main crystal, just a contact behind, where it attached. The crystal has an internal fracture line, visible in the second photo – this is entirely internal – when there aren’t reflections off of faces (such as in the first photo), there is a slightly lighter and slightly darker part of the crystal divided by the line, depending on how you light it. A beautiful and unusually-coloured grossular!
