JZ's Rock of the Day 7/365 - Roxbury Almandine Green's Farm - Super sharp Crystal, Well Cleaned and Etched - Collected 2006
My Garnet collection, oh, it was so nice. Great to show visitors the variations of the garnet family.
We collected this specimen from the location in 2006, then cleaned and mirco-abraded the matrix to really make the garnet stand out.
It was such a nice example, into my collection it went.
Location was sold in 2012 and the new owners do not allow collecting and that makes me sadder than many things.
2.25x2x1 inches in size
Green's Farm locality (Roxbury garnet mine; Roxbury Falls garnet mine; Garnet Hill), Roxbury, Litchfield Co., Connecticut, USA
