Almandine
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Karoi district, Mashonaland West, Zimbabwe <br /><br />1" in diameter <br /><br />This crystal is a floater. It was bought from Isaias Casanova during a visit to his home in Tucson in late 2012.  I had not previously seen any Zimbabwean garnet crystals.  I still have little experience with Zimbabwean gem crystals although I believe that many Zimbabwean geological formations have produced or have potential to produce a wide variety of gem crystals including fine quality bicolored etched heliodor crystals, bicolored (pink and green sceptered tourmaline), double terminated quartz crystals that resemble "Herkimer Diamonds", blue or bicolored (blue and white) crystallized euclase and alexandrite trillings or groups of trillings on matrix that are strongly dichroic.  <br /><br />Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia</p>
