Species: Grossular Garnet
Locality: Jeffrey mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada

The Jeffrey mine, located in central Quebec, Canada, is the world’s premier locality for grossular garnet crystals, and the gemmy, lustrous, vivid-orange crystals that occur at this giant former asbestos mine are world-famous for their exquisite beauty and perfection. This is a fine large cabinet-size plate of highly-lustrous, totally gemmy orange crystals to 1 cm on rodingite matrix. A great Jeffrey mine garnet with lots of visual “bang for the buck.” Classic!!
