For sale is an outstanding and uncommon example of honey brown garnet, from Mt Garnet, Qld. This has wonderful maximum luster, with the crystal faces being made up of interesting stepped growth, not uncommon in garnet, but also not see very often, particularly in specimens of Australian garnet. Actually I think its the very first time I have seen this in Australian garnet. This is one specimen that is way way better in your hands. Then there is the color, the brown yellow color is not common, this is the finest example I have seen from this location. Ex Bernie Whyte collection (no. 1315). Please note the color is actually a lighter more honey color than the pics indicate, its very hard to capture the true sweet color.
