Almandine, Bennett Quarry, Buckfield, Oxford County, Maine, ex. Neal Yedlin specimen, 1959, ex. Louis Lafayette Collection, Miniature 2.0 x 3.5 x 4.0 cm, $125. Online 10/26.
Nice miniature from a classic northeast US locality. Rarely seen on the market today. Deep reddish-brown almandine with associated feldspar matrix. Nice provenance-ex. Yale College. On one side there is what appears to be a broken face however there are a couple of display views that make this inconsequential. Lafayette label says "famous old-time Maine quarry".
