Andradite Garnet With Epidote and Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 6.1 x 4.0 cm
Garnet Hill, Calaveras Co., California, USA

Extremely high luster, good size, and showy aesthetics make this one of the very best such specimens for the locality, which is near to where the Calaveras axinites were found long ago. Garnet, however, is much more rare and this is thus a significant locality specimen.
