Ex. Robert Nowakowski
A gorgeous, deep red, garnet cluster with large crystals of very high, waxy luster that would be considered extremely good for this locality. Minor epidote is present. Despite some minor peripheral wear at bottom, this is in super condition for the locale, which such freestanding specimens are extremely uncommon. This is from the Garnet sub-collection of Bob Nowakowski. Joe Budd Photos.
