PGT1 Quartz, Garnet var. Spessartine, Orthoclase
Shigar Valley, Baltistan, Pakistan
4.3x 3.5x 2.3 cm

An undamaged garnet crystal sits atop a cluster of orthoclase and quartz crystals. One of the quartz crystals is water clear, and double terminated. The garnet APPEARS to have a small chip on the edge, but when you look closely you see that it is really just etching. A beautiful and well balanced combination specimen, one of the few garnets I purchased in Pakistan back in 2006.
