Garnet - Beryl Pit, Quadeville, Lyndoch Township, Renfrew Co., Ontario, Canada

Posted by Tim Jokela Jr  
Two photos gotta go. No green garnet is known from Quadeville. I'd suggest this is chlorite; perhaps a mixture, perhaps a replacement, definitely not a green garnet from Quadeville. A minute under the scope could clarify the ID, but I can't be positive from the photos.

Hi Tim;

Almost looks like Diopside or Apatite, but not from that locality, as Diopside is not found there, though the matrix looks about right.

Like Norbert suggested, might be a poorly developed beryl crystal.
Colors a bit odd for beryl, and no clear hex outline... beryl from Quadeville is extremely conservative, you might say, invariably showing the six sided prism, almost never terminated. Possibly a pseudo or cavity filling, really don't think it's a crystal, need to see in person.
