Almandine - important specimen from classic locale
stock #0944-JM-M19
Mount Mica, Paris, Oxford County
Maine, United States
6.1 x 5.3 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $390


An important and choice Almandine on pegmatite matrix from the 1974 Dagenais Pocket (named for Rene Dagenais). This specimen was in the collection of John Marshall who was at that time one of the owners of the locality. According to John it was the best Garnet he had seen from Mt Mica. The specimen retains his painted on label and collection number M-19. The Almandine is mostly complete with dark red higlights. There is an area of damage on the backside but the front is clean and presents well. Garnet is rather common at the famed Mt Mica, but any well formed crystals are especially rare. A significant specimen from a famed pocket and important for the locality.

Spring update

Well formed bi-colored green Tourmaline exposed on matrix from THE classic US locale for Elbaites, Mt. Mica. Collected in the sixties by Les Hitchings, the large Elbaite is in perfect condition. The Matrix is a typical mix of Quartz crystals with Cooketite and feldspar with several partial Elbaites and one small Tourmaline is still fully encased in the Cookeite and could be exposed if so desired. Since 1821 this locality has been the most famed US Gem pegmatite.
