15PR07 Grossular garnet
Mina Cantera, Casma Prov., Ancash Dept., Peru
8.0x 5.8x 7.3 cm
$485

This is not the most beautiful thing in the world, but it's the best garnet I have seen from Peru, and comes from a find made 3-4 years ago.  It is accompanied by a partial vesuvianite crystal. 

For the sake of comparison, I purchased a group of these about 3 years ago when the find was fresh-- the largest crystal was about 1 inch.  If you are a garnet collector, you might want to consider this one....
