This thumbnail piece consists of a partial crust of intergrown Grossular crystals. These crystals are in good condition; though the crystals show considerable damage, this damage is old and partly healed. The crystals that make up the crust show the standard dodecahedral form, though their edges are truncated through stepping. They vary in diameter from 0.1-0.5" (0.3-1.3 cm) and show the classic cinnamon-brown color and vitreous luster of the specie. They are all transparent and moderately to very clear. The piece is affixed to an acrylic base.
