Natural Uvarovite Drusy Garnet Crystal Specimens from the Ural Mountains

Uvarovite is a form of garnet. The examples here are from the Ural Mountains of Russia. Each one of these Uvarovite specimens is composed of hundreds of tiny crystals (drusy) on a matrix of darker stone. The Garnet is green because of the presence of chromium, which makes Emeralds this particular shade of green. The Uvarovite crystals shimmer when light crosses the surface.

This is a beautiful example of a rare Russian mineral for your collection! Mineral specimens of Uvarovite with such exceptional brilliance and color are unusual.
