A very rare and superb (for this remote and exhausted locality) example of grossular garnet on matrix, associated with contrastinf green peidote. The crystals have good luster and are translucent! A fine Greek garnet that I had the luck of finding at the locality myself, more than 10 years ago. I have not seen anything better from there.
