Here is an extraordinary display specimen featuring over 20 almandine garnets on silvery micaceous schist.  The contrast really brings out the dark, blood red color of the garnets, which are highly lustrous and very shiny.  The crystals, which range in size up to an inch, are sharp dodecahedrons, and all but a couple on one outer edge are complete and undamaged. This is an outstanding display specimen from a long-time classic New England locality, and is one of the finest of its kind that I have seen.
