Very uncommon on the market, a specimen of andradite garnet from Greece, out of the collection of Clyde Hardin. Serifos Island is a classic locality, but you do not see many specimens around from it - there were never all that many at any one point. Under good light, you can see that these crystals (to half a centimeter) are a transparent coffee color.
