Oh, radiant Spessartine, your vibrant orange so bright,
Mesmerizing our eyes with a fiery light.
Devoid of red, yellow, or brown, a pure hue you hold,
The last of its kind, a story untold.
Enjoy its pictures, admire its beauty so rare,
A gem to cherish, a treasure beyond compare.
Whether in your collection or admired from afar,
This exquisite Spessartine is a true orange star.
While this rough is maybe deserving of a poem, I am clearly not a poet. This is not a normal spessartite or mandarin garnet this is the most concentrated orange garnet that we have ever seen. It really is void of yellow, red, or brown. As wonderful as it is, it also comes with a sad story because it might be the last of its kind as the mine collapsed.
So enjoy the pictures or add it to your collection. Either way, it’s a beauty.

Notes: Astonishingly clean stone for this material. Some surface wear/chatter. There is one surface-reaching fracture on one side, if you make this the pavilion of the stone, it should cut perfectly clean.
