English: Grossular
Locality: Jeffrey mine (Jeffrey quarry; Johns-Manville mine), Asbestos, Les Sources RCM, Estrie, Québec, Canada (Locality at mindat.org)
Jeffrey Mine garnets of any quality are disappearing rapidly, and this specimen consists of two HUGE crystals stacked on top of one another! They have wonderful luster, incredibly cool diamond-shaped striations on their faces, and are extremely gemmy! Each crystal measures just about 2.5 cm and the piece is complete extcept for the natural contact on the bottom. The back of the specimen is flat, a natural contact face. THIS IS HUGE FOR THE LOCALITY! The specimen was repaired, to reattach the two crystals at their natural junction, but the fit is exact and clean and not noticeable. THIS QUARRY IS NOW closed and gone for good. this piece has enormous display impact. Old material from the Gary Hansen Collection (reflective of 1970s-80s dealer stock) 4.1 x 2.7 x 1.5 cm
