The speciment was found in the classic location in the mountains of Bumansfjord, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway. The specimen got a weight of 931 grams, and measures 90 x 150 x 92 mm (height x length x width)
A lot of small cola-brown garnet crystals (var. Grossular) mixed with small green diopside crystals. The crystals are etched out from the calcite. The last picture is from the backside.
The crystals are small, and you will see quite much damages if you look close (a little hard to see what is damages and what is natural). However it is a nice mix and an estecthic piece.
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.
This specimen was found in the late 1980s by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
