2.9" Flashy Brilliant DarkRed GROSSULAR GARNET Crystals Coyote Front CA for sale

  • $40.20$60.00

Here is a beautiful specimen of sparkling cinnamon red orange grossular garnet from Coyote Front in the town of Bishop, Inyo Co., California. The grossular from Bishop is beautiful but definitely under-appreciated. I first saw this material about 10 years ago, when I purchased a piece from Chris Lehmann, a California collector. I was amazed and delighted by the exceptional cinnamon red color and the brilliant, glassy luster of the gemmy, partly transparent, very sharply formed dodecahedral crystals. When I was at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show this year, I met up with Chris again and was delighted to see this very choice specimen he had mined still available in his room.
