ALMANDINE GARNET, a large, sharp crystal on MUSCOVITE

Russell, Hampden County, Massachusetts.
Measures 3 x 2-3/4 x 1-1/2 inches. A large (2x1-1/2 inch), sharp crystal on a crystallized muscovite matrix. Many of these old-time matrix specimens were faked by skilfully gluing the loose crystals  on a rock matrix. When the crystals occur in a muscovite matrix their genuineness is usually assured. This specimen is guaranteed unrepaired and unrestored in any way.
