Few crystals show a wider variation with a complex zoning ranging from pure andradite to almost pure grossular. As inclusion were found diopside (XMg 0.92-0.95), wollastonite, quartz, calcite and sphalerite. Sometimes they also form vein-type pockets with perfect crystals of high gem quality and perfect shape, they occur together with quartz and prehnite.“- European Mineralogical Conference, Vol. 1, EMC2012-313, 2012, ‘The Demantoid garnets of the Green Dragon mine’, F. Koller, Zs. Pintér, and Cs. Szabó.
