S18135 - Spessartine with Microcline - SOLD
Little Three Mine, Ramona District, San Diego Co., California
Overall Size: 7.5 x 4.5 cm
This rather attractive and timeless California classic is an especially fine specimen of spessartine. The Little Three mine was named after the partnership of the original three owners. This mine and nearby Hercules dike have provided what many collectors consider to be the best matrix spessartine. No other locality in the world quite matches the look of these gem orange fireballs plopped atop microcline. This specimen is in good condition.
