Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 3.6 x 2.7 x 1.0 cm
Jeffrey Mine Garnets are considered the best in the world, and this is a fine, representative specimen from the mine. These crystals are gemmy with light cinnamon color and they have the superb striations that so often grace Garnets. The largest Grossular is 1.2 cm across, and it has only a small contact point right on one corner. Otherwise, the piece is in pristine condition, and has good overall aesthetics.
