Summary

Description
English: Almandine
Locality: Russell Garnet mine, Russell, Hampden County, Massachusetts, USA (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: cabinet, 12.3 x 6.3 x 5.5 cm
Almandine Garnet
This large cabinet specimen hosts a superb, 2-inch or 5-cm-across trapezohedral crystal on a pedestal of equally sharp only slightly smaller crystals. It is a huge crystal for the find. The piece is complete on 3 sides, with rock matrix and a side contact on the back of the display face, and pristine on all front faces. It has one clean (and old) contact-repair at the halfway point, at a contact between the upper half and lower portion of the specimen. This is a very rare museum-sized example of the classic "Russel Garnets" found in the late 1800s by two lucky locals (Daniel Clark and F.S. Johnson). The famous Houston Museum specimen shown in the 2009 Garnet calendar is 8 cm across, with a crystal of similar size to this piece atop. This specimen is one of the better examples I have seen for its good balance and symmetry. It has a solid matrix, which is rare. At the time they were found, these crystals were all famously buffed or polished by the finders (with shoe polish, I am told), some more and some less. This particular specimen has less of an apparent gloss and buffed smoothness than others I have seen, giving it a more natural look than usual. One of the major pieces in the Whitmore collection.
