Miniature, 4.5 x 4.2 x 2.0 cm
Quartzite Mountain, (Stanley Butte [nearby]; Quartzite Mountain Garnets), Stanley District, Santa Teresa Mts, San Carlos Indian Reservation, Graham Co., Arizona, USA
These Andradites are some of the most easily recognizable of any Garnet specimens around. Their distinctive brownish-green or olive green color and semi metallic luster are a dead giveaway. This specimen is a very fine display piece of this famous material from Stanley Butte. It features many sharp, highly lustrous dodecahedra of Andradite with virtually no damage to any of the main crystals, the largest of which measures 8 mm. A great cluster of these well known Garnets.
