Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive a rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rock shown. The photograph with multiple rocks is so you can see the range of differences in this bulk purchase specimen listing. Photographing and listing every rock separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.


Almandine is the most common form of the gemstone Garnet. The term Garnet describes a group name for several closely related minerals that form important gemstones, and Almandine is an individual member mineral of the Garnet group. Almandine is usually opaque and unfit for gemstones use; though the less common transparent to translucent forms make fine gemstones. In the gem trade, the term Almandine is rarely used on its own. It is either generically called Garnet, or Almandine Garnet. Almandine is almost invariably dark in color, and it forms dark red to reddish-brown Garnet gemstones. Almandine is the hardest form of Garnet, and a pure deep red is its most valuable color.
