Large Uvarovite Crystal
Large Uvarovite Crystal from Outukumpu, Finland
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description Gorgeous classic dodecahedron of Uvarovite with excellent deep green color and superb luster. This is a huge (1.3 cm!) crystal and thus an important specimen for the species, with just minor edge wear when most of them you see are worn heavily or damaged from being popped out of the calcite. This one, however, seems to have been freestanding in the pocket and so the faces are not affected by removal of the Calcite by acid or physical means.
Locality Outukumpu, Finland
Dimensions 3.5 x 2.3 x 1.5 cm.
Specimen Grade D
