The two main components of this specimen are almandine garnet, and muscovite mica. There is also some quartz, and dull grey/black amphiboles. The wine red garnet is massive, and only shows fractured surfaces. The muscovite mica is shiny silverish plates, with some pseudo hexagonal plates observed. This specimen should really be listed as a rock rather than a mineral. It's location is from the pegmatites of the Evje area of Norway.
