Ripidolite (Clinochlore) pseudo after Garnet

Spurr Mine, Imperial Heights, Baraga County, Michigan, United States
minID: E6H-WAP
20mm x 18mm x 17mm
$80
A complete 360 degree Garnet crystal fully replaced by the Ripidolite (var. of Clinoclore) with a tiny sliver of matrix. A classic from Michigan, these were at one time called Aphrosiderite, and the replacing materials were usually referred to as Chlorite. This thumbnail is quite sharp and has kept some small edge modifications seen on some faces. The source of this one is the Spurr Mine, most others we have seen do not have specific localities.
Data last checked on 1st Dec 2021 - specimen may no longer be available
