This is a wonderful old time piece in which large, lustrous almandine garnets is set in biotite schist from the Stikine River, Wrangell Island, Alaska, USA. This piece measures overall 16 wide by 11 tall and 4.1 cm front to back. The largest garnet is 2.2 cm across and all show an excellent saturation of deep red color. The only damage to the garnets appears to be in the form of minor contacts. The bottom of the piece has been cut so it will display better.
