This garnet is from the famous Emerald Creek area, where the famous star garnets come from. This is genuine garnets with a little foreign matter (mica-schist which the garnet eroded out of). It makes great sand tray material, aquariums, mosaics, arts and crafts. Not commonly available. This material may also appeal to sand collectors and teachers for their classrooms, etc.
The garnet is small. Using a metric ruler, the material is 4-5mm in size. Some pieces are smaller. It cannot be tumbled in a rotating-barrel tumbler as it is too small. A vibrating polisher would be the only method.
The first 3 photos were taken "wet" to show the garnets and color. The last photo was taken dry. See the coin (dime) in the photo/s for size reference.
Each purchase of one pound will be scooped from the bucket seen.
NOTE: If you purchase more than one item or stone lot, I am happy to combine any items I safely can in order to save on shipping costs. I automatically refund any significant over payments after items have been packaged and shipping method has been determined.
