A small bright green druzy Uvarovite garnet specimen inside a clear perspex specimen box. Specimen dimensions are 14mm x 24mm.
Uvarovite is lush emerald green in colour, the only consistently green Garnet. Named for a Russian statesman, it is sometimes confused with Emerald and is hard to distinguish from the dark green Grossular Garnet, Tsavorite, even though their chemical compositions are different. It is very rare in gem form.
