Deep reddish garnets (var. Almandine based on published Fe:Mn ratios in the range of 2.5:1) in flow-banded rhyolite matrix, likely to be from the Robinson Mining District between the towns of Ruth and Ely, Nevada. Approx. 9 x 5.5 x 2 inches. Garnets in the photo are about 1/2-inch in diameter. Today you can visit a public quarry on Garnet Hill in the Garnet Fields Recreational Area which is just across US Highway 50 (The Loneliest Road in America) from the Robinson Open-Pit Copper Mine and collect your own specimens. If you don't want to drive that far, bid on this specimen.
