Grossular Garnet
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada
Miniature, 5.5 x 4.8 x 2.9 cm
With the Jeffrey Mine now closed, fine grossular garnet specimens, like this one, are becoming even more scarce than before. This matrix specimen has several, gemmy, lustrous, cinnamon colored crystals to almost 2.00 cm across. The defining characteristics of these garnet crystals, are the incredible striations which modify the main dodecahedral faces. Truly fine and getting much harder to find! This is a very aestheic miniature, by any standard.
