Rare Demantoid Garnet Cluster from Madagascar - 2.3" - 38.8 Grams

This is a really nice rare Demantoid Garnet cluster from Madagascar, which was only discovered in 2009. Now, because the mine is so close to the seashore, the mine has been flooded as the diggings got too deep to hold back the water, so the operations are done for now, and possibly for good. There are gem crystals up to 12 mm in diameter and they are very lustrous and gemmy. Beautiful specimen.
