Grossular Garnet
Pitts-Tenney Quarry, Minot, Androscoggin Co., Maine, USA
Cabinet, 13.0 x 7.0 x 5.0 cm
Ex. Robert Whitmore
This is a very desired old locality with uniquely colored garnets of an amber-reddish mix in color. They are very attractive in person! This specimen features aesthetic sharp crystals in matrix, to 3.5 cm in size. It is a major example for the location and for a NE garnet. Whitmore's garnet suite, built by collecting and trading for 50 years, was particularly notable.
