From the Gaisberg Glacier in the Tyrol comes this lovely single crystal of almandine garnet.  It is formed as a dodecahedron, with 12 sharp sides.  The color is a dark red, and it has a nice pearly luster.  This is from an old classic European locality which was exhausted years ago, so you no longer see many of these at shows.
