Andradite-Grossular-Spessartine Series var. Bishop Garnets (Ca,Mn)3(Al,Fe)2(SiO4)3 /Images/picture.jpg Blue Jay #1 Mine, Bishop, Coyote Front Range, Inyo County, California acquired 2005 Scheelite Secondary Mineral(s) possible From the collection of Timothy McGinnis. From the collection of Paula Gochenour. Collected by Paul Gachenour (owner of the Cryo-genie Tourmaline Mine).
I am used to seeing garnets with beveled edge crystals. On one of these crystals, all the beveled edges also have bevels. A couple other crystals show this on at least one edge.
Analysis shows SiO2 = 38.4%, CaO = 32.4%, Fe2O3 = 8.5%, Al2O3 = 16.4%, and MnO = 4.3%.
Timm has proposed a new Andradite-Grossular-Spessartine Series to classify these garnets, which I am supporting.

Halite Formula /Images/picture.jpg 2,150 ft underground disposal level, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant East of Carlsbad, New Mexico collected 2005, acquired by trade in 2005 Halite Secondary Mineral(s) Collected by Norbert Rempe. Acquired by Steve Travis in 2005. The specimen is thermosealed inside a thick plastic bag, printed with a label that reads "Permian Age Rock Salt, 225 million yuears old from the 2,150 ft underground disposal level, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant East of Carlsbad, New Mexico, US Department of Energy, Carlsbad Area Office, www.wipp.carlsbad.nm.us".
Discussion with Steve showed this sealed bag (and not #2204) contained the enhydro mentioned on the label for both specimens (it was affixed to #2204) I acquired from this location. I actually found several 'bubbles' in the specimens in this sealed bag after I got out a lens. The really fun fact is that the 'bubbles' in this salt are square/cubic.

Pecos Diamonds Formula /Images/picture.jpg 2,150 ft underground disposal level, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant East of Carlsbad, New Mexico collected 2005, acquired by trade in 2005 Halite Secondary Mineral(s) Collected by Norbert Rempe. Acquired by Steve Travis in 2005. The specimen is thermosealed inside a thick plastic bag. Several Pecos Diamonds are visible in the fist sized chunk of salt.
There is a smaller thermosealed bag inside with the specimen; it has a label that reads "Steve, Here are some Pecos Diamonds. Norbert".
Steve's label on the outside bag identified Norbert and noted the smaller salt crystal was an enhydro (further discussion with Steve showed this comment really applied to the other specimen from this location, #2203). The smaller (inside) bag contains a salt crystal and four loose pecos diamonds.
The outside bag is printed with a label that reads "Permian Age Rock Salt, 225 million yuears old from the 2,150 ft underground disposal level, Waste Isolation Pilot Plant East of Carlsbad, New Mexico, US Department of Energy, Carlsbad Area Office, www.wipp.carlsbad.nm.us".
