Outstanding small thumbnail composed of two interconnected GEM Tsavorite crystal on Graphite.

I love little oddities like this from Merelani. This appears to be solid Diopside with Diopside crystals sticking out in all directions. Sprinkled atop the Diopside are crystals of Pyrite and Tsavorite. There are lots of Tsavorite here, more than a dozen, maybe 20.

An uncommon matrix Tsavorite specimen with large gemmy crystals associated with Calcite on Graphite. The two largest crystals are each about 1.7cm wide. The crystals are very gemmy, good sized, and on matrix. The white Calcite crystals provide nice color contrast too. There is significant gem value to the crystals, possibly more valuble than my asking price. The central crystal has a facet grade gem area that is 13 x 10 x 7mm. Large gem quality Tsavorites are hard to find, especially on matrix.

A real GEM of a Tsavorite crystal. Totally transparent and crystalized on all sides, even the bottom. Some Tsavorites grow perched atop the edges of Graphite crystals which allows crystal faces to form on the bottom as well as the top and sides.There are residual thin black grooves on the bottom where the Graphite crystals were, otherwise fully crystallized.
