38 mm Almandine from Veidnes
Veidnes, Lebesby, Finnmark, Norway
Size: 37x38x35 mm (118 gr.)
This Almandine (Garnet) is from Veidnes, Lebesby, Finnmark, Norway
The Almandine from this location is pretty rare, and you will not find the location marked on Mindat. However, this was the place my father grew up when he was a kid, and I was together with him when we collected the Almandines in 1980-1981.
It is a big and complete crystal. It is totally covered of schist so you cannot see its color.
