Six dodecahedral Almandine Garnets are on the schist matrix, and while opaque the dark, wine-colored crystals make quite an impression! Since the garnets are encased in matrix the surfaces come out of the ground quite dull, so they have been buffed to bring back some shine - a practice which is quite common with most of these garnet specimens. The largest crystal measures 3.6cm corner-to-corner. 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
