Almandine -fine crystals on Schist (Ref: 17.1-019)

Granatenkogel North Slope, Gaisberg Valley. Bergurgl, Gurgler Valley, Ot, Tyrol, Austria
67mm x 50mm x 33mm
minID: 79V-5D5
$220
An esthetic, old Garnet specimen with crystals to 2.8 CM in impeccable condition. What sets this piece apart is the rich red color and translucency, which is far better than most. Well presented and exposed in a nice composition. As is often the case with these Austrian classics, there has been a thin layer of clear shellac or varnish applied which stabilized the often crumbly Schist matrix and adds a little luster to the garnets. This is now seen as an undesirable tactic but in the 19th century it was common. This can be removed with Acetone if desired but it is historicaly accurate to keep it as well.
