Almandine Garnet
These garnets, rare from the locale, are razor sharp and stereotypic exmaples of the species. This piece features several aesthetic, sharp crystals in matrix. INFO COURTESY OF DR. VANDALL KING: I saw your fantastic dodecahedral almandine from Topsham, Maine. It may be one of the finest purely dodecahedral almandines from the USA. I saw it the day it was found in 2000. I was at the Biotite Crystal Prospect in Topsham, and the crystal had been found that morning by Cliff Trebilcock who returned to see who was at the locality. The Fisher Quarry (which you had this attributed to) is known for some wonderful trapezohedral almandines, but I suspect there was some confusion on the labeling subsequently. The Fisher Quarry still exists as a locality, but the Biotite Crystal Prospect is now history under a housing development. Ex. Robert Whitmore Collection.
