Grossular Garnet

Specimen # 200275
Mineral: Grossular Garnet
Location: Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Estrie, Quebec, Canada
Size: 5.7 x 4.2 x 3.0 cm


Deep orange grossular crystals from the Jeffrey Mine. The two main crystals are particularly fine, sharp and lustrous with good colour and nice transparency. In excellent condition, one incomplete crystal at the edge and minor contacts around the periphery. I note that there is an internal glint near the top of the largest crystals – there is no surface damage. A beautiful specimen from this now-closed locality, it stands perfectly for display as photographed. From the Steve Szilard collection.
