large museum piece of very old collection 15 kg

There are several dozen burgundy red almandine garnets on this specimen, and they stand out nicely against a silvery mica schist matrix on this fine specimen from the edge of the Geisberg Glacier in Tyrol, Austria. The garnets are quite large, up to 1.2", and are sharply-formed dodecahedrons, with a resinous luster and great color. This locality was exhausted years ago, so the only examples you can find are, like this piece, from old collections.
