Garnet pseudomorphed by Chamosite (Chlorite)
stock #15.1-893
Michigamme, Marquette County
Michigan, United States
5.2 x 3.8 x2.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $130
Spring 2017

Perfectly formed Chamosite pseudo having the shape of the original Garnet (probably Almandine). Unlike most from this classic find, this is a matrix specimen, and the crystal is not rounded but is very sharp. These were first collected over 130 years ago (at that time called Aphrosiderite, a discredited name) and still are sometimes found, but rarely of good quality. A nice affordable classic pseudomorph.
Garnet (pseudomorphed by Chlorite/Chamosite)
stock #8.1-445B
Michigamme, Marquette County
Michigan, United States
6.9 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $140


A big, sharp and fine example of the "aphrosiderite" pseudomorph of Garnet by a Chlorite mineral. These old classics from Michigan are usually not this good, this crystal has every face complete and is a the most perfect example I have handled, and at nearly 3 inches, that is remarkable. Nice black to greenish blue patina too. An old Wards label is included.
