Description

Cluster of cola brown translucent Grossular crystals on snow white calcite.

There are 3 big crystals at the top, two of them damage-free and the last one has some damages at the lower part.

Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway

Most of the year the field where the minerals are found is covered with ice and snow, and today this area is now a part of the Seiland National Park, and collecting from this area is now strictly forbidden. So not only is this a rare material but also it will not be collected more of it.

This specimen was found in the late 1980's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
