These lovely Grossular Garnets from Mali have been quite popular the last 10 years, but are now a dwindling treasure. The deposits in Mali have dried up for the most part, and now it is difficult to find any of this material, which is a real shame. They were originally described as “Mali Garnets” because their chemistry was complicated, not being fully Grossular or Andradite. Then the trade name Grandite came about after the exact Chemistry could not be pinpointed without testing every single stone. This crystal is lovely! It has a rich yellow/green color with orange edges. It has complex crystal growth. It’s a dodecahedron with octahedron modifications. There are negative crystal face all over it along with multi level crystal regrowths. Such an intricate specimen! This crystal is an Earth mined stone, completely natural and untreated. Enjoy!
