Otz valley, North Tyrol, Tyrol, Austria
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 4.1 x 3.5 cm
Arising from a gray-green schist are two, equant, euhedral, crystals of almandine. The largest of these reddish- brown crystals measures 4 cm across. The terminations are bruised, however, this is still an impressive garnet specimen. NOT POLISHED as are so many from this old classic locality, and THAT is remarkable indeed for a crystal of such size to have escaped this fate! 7.6 x 4.1 x 3.5 cm
