Grossular Garnet Pseudo. After Epidote
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 4.2 x 3.8 cm
Eden Mills, Lowell, Vermont, USA
Ex. Ken Hollmann

A rare replacement, classic for this locality! This is a super specimen with a large, 3-dimensional, sharp crystal at the top of a cluster of smaller ones. The Grossular garnet has completely replaced a former epidote crystal cluster. Diopside crystals deposited later, accent the termination. Although there is a slight contact to the right side of the replaced epidote termination, the termination is basically complete, and sure looks complete at first glance. Again, it is a very choice example for the style because of the sharpness of crystal habit here. Ex. Ken Hollman Collection
