The garnets on this specimen of almandine are sharp and smooth, especially for crystals this size. They are classic and well-formed, deep brownish-red dodecahedron measuring up to 1.1" across, and they are aesthetically set in a silvery gray sparkling mica schist matrix. There are 2 large and several other smaller crystals in the matrix. The Green's Farm locality closed in late 2012, so good specimens like this have become hard to get. I collected this piece myself in 2007.
