JZ's Rock of the Day 3/365 -Green Andradite Garnet Crystal Plate California Green Fire Mine 2.25 inch across - Sharp Crystals Great Green!
From my personal garnet collection, this specimen of sharp green andradite garnets is a classic from the location. Often called Demantoid Garnets, this location is like the ultimate drama-filled partner, on again, off again, closed to visitors, opened via permit, oh come on, just get a GRIP already! There are dozens of crystals all pressed together with a few singles here and there. From me to you, own this classic California Garnet specimen!
2.25x1.75x.75 inches in size
from Green Fire Mine, Santa Rita Peak, New Idria Mining District, San Benito Co., California, USA
