Garnet Ledge, Wrangell, Wrangell Island, Wrangell-Petersburg Borough, Alaska, USA
Large Cabinet, 30.5 x 16.9 x 4.9 cm
A huge specimen showcasing the fine, sharp, wine-red almandine garnets from Wrangell, Alaska, in this case still embedded in matrix - isolated, large and very dramatic. These are old classics and few big specimens turn up today on the market. Sometimes these are found and sold as floater crystals, other times still in the matrix. The largest crystal here measures 2.5 cm across; there are a total of 6 crystals here. Ex. Consie Prince Collection.
