Jeffrey mine (Jeffrey quarry; Johns-Manville mine), Asbestos, Les Sources RCM, Estrie, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 3.4 x 3.1 x 1.4 cm
These Jeffrey Mine garnets have always been sought after, but much more so since the mine closed a couple of years back. Now they are quickly grabbed up whenever they become available. This specimen has super-gemmy and bright crystals to 0.7 cm, and it is distinguished by having nice 3-dimensionality, rather than being the usual flat plate with the crystals pressed together.
