|This gem is a rare, old mine (original discovery area) Russian Demantoid Garnet. This stone has many well formed classic "horsetail" inclusions as well as other unusual inclusions. The interior of this gem is a virtual gemological garden! Also shifts in color from golden green in natural and incandescent light to an attractive golden brown in incandescent light.|
The numerous horsetail inclusions have blocked some of the brilliance that Demantoid is known for but... it is still a beautiful gem and comes to life in natural and fluorescent light and shows multi-color dispersion!
Great for collectors and a wonderful stone for gemology studies! Pretty enough for jewelry!
