Grossular
Pitts-Tenney Quarry, Minot, Maine, USA

This is one of the finest LARGE garnets I have seen from this location. It is from a collection dating back to the 1950s and has great luster. Since the garnets from this locality are enclosed in quartz, they are notoriously difficult to collect and prep without damage. This one is nearly perfect. The bottom edge is not damaged...the quartz and garnet are just a little intergrown. A super piece from this classic locality, measuring 12 x 9.5 x 8.5 cm overall. The garnet measures 8.5 cm from side to side and each face edge about 4 cm!
