Mason Valley Gem Claim, Mason Valley, Banner District, San Diego Co., California, USA
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.7 x 1.9 cm
More garnet varietals out of the Bill Larson collection - this, a set of 3 California grossulars that look for all the world like a classroom model! Their luster and color I think adds to it - they really do look like wooden models! Just so ultra-cool and eye-catching in person and the kind of thing that amazes non-rock people when they are told they are natural.
