Sherry Grossular Garnet "Crystalline Dewdrops"
Outstanding Thumbnail Mineral Specimen

Dimensions (mm): 25 x 15 x 15

Dimensions (inches): 1 x .6 x .6

Origins: from Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Quebec, Canada

Jeffrey Mine, an asbestos mine, shut down many years ago due to asbestos litigation. Occasionally the US government contracts for asbestos to be used in tiles for the space shuttle. During these brief openings collectors from the Montreal Mineral Society are allowed a day of collecting. The mine has to be in operation to collect as the pumps need to be running to remove the water. Now that the space shuttle program is shuttered no one knows when the next time to collect here will be if ever.

Please see the "Mineral Collector Room" for the discerning collector:
