GARNET species ANDRADITE
Garnet Hill Mine,
Moore Creek - Mokelumne River confluence area,
Calaveras County, California
SIZE: 3 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Description: A "whopper" of a garnet specimen from the classic California ocurrence! I tried to supply enough photos to convey the size and quality of this specimen. It is all andradite (nearly 2 lbs!), of coarse - but has incomplete areas as well.
Crystal faces are lustrous and the piece displays beautifully.
