dark red almandine garnets stand out against a silvery mica schist on
this superb specimen from the Gaisberg Glacier in Austria. The garnets
are quite large, up to 2" in diameter, and are sharply-formed dodecahedrons,
with a resinous luster and great color. The schist around the garnets
has been carefully removed to expose them fully, and they are plentiful
and undamaged on this fine piece.

about crystals/mineral specimens from this location
a superb specimen of ALMANDINE GARNET crystals set in silver-gray
SCHIST, from the Gaisberg Glacier, Obergurgl, Ötz Valley, North
Tyrol, Tyrol, Austria. I acquired this excellent crystal at the Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines
Show this year from an Austrian dealer who was set up in one
of the cute Medieval Faire tents. This was the largest and finest specimen
he had, and he advised me that the site is now played out, so there
will be no more new material forthcoming.
about gems, rocks and minerals
is the most common of the garnets and is usually the garnet found in
garnet schists (a type of metamorphic rock composed mostly of mica).
Precious transparent crystals are frequently used as gemstones along
with its close cousin, Pyrope. Almandine, like other garnets, forms
rounded crystals with 12 rhombic or 24 trapezoidal faces or combinations
of these and some other forms. This crystal habit is classic for the
garnet minerals. Almandine is the iron aluminum garnet. Magnesium can
substitute for the iron and become more like pyrope, the magnesium aluminum
garnet. Pure almandine and pure pyrope are rare in nature and most specimens
are a percentage of the two. The change in density from almandine (4.3)
to pyrope (3.6) is the only good test to determine a specimens likely
about crystal, gem and mineral metaphysics and healing
interested in metaphysics and crystal healing tell us that almandine
garnet is especially useful for inspiring contemplation and balancing
the time allotted for solitude. It represents profound love, stimulates
physical vitality, and provides for energizing and opening the path
between the base and crown chakras. To allows one to access and integrate
truth. It helps to initiate charitable actions , and provides for connection
with the higher intellect. It has been used in the treatment of heart
disorders, and for treating diseases of the liver and pancreas.
