Berry Ledge locality, Cornish, York Co., Maine, USA
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.6 x 2.5 cm
This is an old-time Maine specimen, very hard to obtain now, that was in the personal garnet suite of noted dealer/miner/collector Bill Larson of Pala Properties. It is an exquisitely sharp, textbook crystal of caramel color, well-exposed above the quartz matrix. The crystal measures 2.1 cm. An old label that accompanies the specimen shows it to have passed from one Forrest Carpenter of Limerick, Maine and the "Orbit Mineral Company" of McClean, Virginia back in 1957.
