Here is a large plate with more than a dozen dark red almandine garnet crystals to 1" in silvery bluish schist matrix. The garnets are sharply formed, highly lustrous and richly colorful, and are exceptionally large for the locality. This piece was mined by my friend Tom Minnich out of a vein of schist in a remote corner of the mine where the garnets are particularly nice. He patiently prepared the specimen by carefully removing some of the schist to better expose the garnets – all with hand tools.
