Can you help make this a better article? What good localities have we missed? Can you supply pictures of better specimens than those we show here? Can you give us more and better information about the specimens from these localities? Can you supply better geological or historical information on these localities?

This locality has sparingly produced good specimens of the demantoid variety of Andradite and some others as well. Many of the best ones were marketed by Charles Kee who has recently spent a lot of time living in Namibia.

Andradite

Aust-Agder, Arendal
“In large dodecahedrons at Arendal in Aust-Agder… .”1 There are a couple of pictures of Andradite crystals from this locality here on mindat, but they are less than compelling. Certainly some red patriotic Norwegian collector can supply is with a good picture of a fine Andradite specimen from this famous old locality.

The specimen pictured above is an old one and is in the British Museum of Natural History. The black Andradite crystals up to about 12 mm are associated with feldspar crystals. Even though the specimen must have been exceptional in its day, because of the amount of damage on the specimen, it would not be thought highly of by modern collectors. You never see these specimens offered for sale.

Olav Revheim writes 2009: The Arendal and Gjerstad locations are distinct locations and refers to administrative units (municipalities) in Aust Agder, Norway. Both locations belongs to the same geological province (the bamble formation), and the andradite from this area is found in iron rich skarns with magnetite, diopside, quartz, epidote, scapolite (probably marialite). Several of these skarn occurances has been mined for iron. The first mine (Barbu) opened in1585 and the Bråstad mine was not shut down until the 1970-ties. There has been dozens of mining operations in these skarns, and even more locations that has not been mined. Today most of these locations are lost through urban development and flooded mine shafts. The best crystals can be quite good, and I think I remember some excellent specimens from the local museum in Arendal. I cannot recall the crystal size. These specimens are rare on the marked today, and I would suspect that the best specimens can be found in European Museum collections and older private collections in Norway. I suggest that the location Arendal Iron mines or more correctly "Greater Arendal iron skarn locations" can be used for these andradites, just noting that some of these iron mines are located outside the current Arendal municipality. Also the Grua area and Drammensmarka are good Norwegian andradite locations. As soon as we have some good images of these specimens uploaded to mindat, we will include them here. Here is a map that may help you orient the locality.

These are collected from a large open pit mine that opens almost right in the center of town. It is a skarn and they are mining Datolite for the production of Borate minerals. The mine usually has many open pockets on its benches and has produced probably the finest specimens of daotlite known. It is also well known for its Axinite, Hedenbergite and Ilvaite and Calcite specimens. When Russia was a fortress economy during the cold war, such a mine could be justified, but although the mine is still operating on a small scale it is not profitable to run. The reason is that it is much more costly to extract borates from Datolite than from crystallized borax which is being currently mined in Turkey, California and Argentina

It is a really big skarn and besides the open pit mine where they mine Datolite for the production of borates, there are a number of base metal deposits that have been mined over the years and some of the mines are still active. This district is not particularly well known for its andradite specimens, but as you can see from the above images, they have produced many fine specimens.

This specimen is in the British Museum of Natural History. The locality is mentioned in Dana's Text 4th edition as being from Finland. Since that time Russia took over the territory and now the locality is in Russia. The specimens were fairly abundant at one time and the specimen pictured was considered to be a good specimen. It has fairly sharp if not shiny black crystals to about 12 mm. You rarely see them for sale.

These are manganese mines and are not far from Kuraman. The best andradite specimens have been found at the Wessels mine. “Colors vary from brown and red-brown to yellowish red, with smaller orange and red translucent crystals and two occurrences from Wessels of pale-green crystals. Crystal sizes varies from less than 1 mm to 15 mm, averaging abound 5 mm.”1 These andradite crystals are not particularly notable, but their association with crystals of hausmannite, barite, calcite, celestite, hematite, tephroite and sturmanite often makes striking and mineralogically fascinating specimens.

This old British Museum specimen, exceptional for the UK, would not be of interest except to those who specialize in minerals from UK. It does have a classical ding in the classical spot. Andradite (melanite) garnets are an essencial ingredient of the rock called Borrolanite near loch Borrolan, Sutherland, in the north west of Scotland.1

One of the best known localities for andradite in the United States is Stanley Buttes. Over the years, in the last half of the 20th century, many specimens of free standing greenish brown crystals have been collected and sold to collectors. Crystals to about 5 cm in diameter are reported. Most crystals are less than 2 cm in diameter, opaque, and not very shiny, but make pleasing specimens. The crystals are almost always found growing wall to wall and I don’t think I have ever seen a specimen with isolated crystals. I suppose that the best specimens from here might bring two or three hundred dollars and you should be able to get a decent one for less than $50. The locality is on the edge of an Indian reservation and collecting is usually not permitted. If access were unrestricted there would be many more good specimens from this locality available on the market. Most of the specimens pictures above are not typical. Only the first one on the left is somewhat representative of the locality, but it is a fine specimen from there.

Here are found “Fine brown andradite crystals to 2” in diameter, with quartz, calcite and epidote” according to (Sinkankas, Mineralogy p539). These crystals are usually found growing wall to wall and frequently exhibit damage due to the way they grow and the methods used in collecting them. Decent specimens from this locality can be had from time to time for less than $50. They would be more abundant if they were easier to collect or if there was more demand for them. The specimen pictured here is about 8 cm in diameter and must be one of the best ever collected at the locality.

Good specimens of black melanite crystals and a few good specimens of the topazolite variety of andradite are found at various localities in San Benito County. The melanite crystals from here are exceptionally sharp and shiny though rarely reaching a cm in size. The crystals are found freestanding in shrinkage cracks in the metamorphic rocks of the region and though they are usually smaller than a centimeter in diameter, their sharpness and brilliant luster makes them very attractive to collectors. The few very good melanites that have been found would probably command more than a thousand dollars but most of the specimens from here will bring less than a hundred and representative specimens can be had for much less.
The topazolite variety occur in translucent to transparent amber to greenish brown freestanding crystals that have a devoted following and I have seen a few pleasant specimens, but nothing that would start a riot. This variety is much less common than the melanite variety. The largest crystals might reach about a cm. Steve Smale of Berkley, California has the best specimen of this variety that I have seen and it is probably worth somewhere from $5000 to $10,000 dollars. It is much better than the next best one I have seen. Field collectors that frequent San Benito County and those who lust after California specimens look at this specimen and weep.

There are some collectors of minerals that think that the sun rises and sets on the minerals from Franklin and will pay amazing prices for fine andradite garnets and other specimens from these deposits. These garnets are usually brown, can be 8 cm across, but are usually damaged. Some specimens have smaller shiny black crystals but again almost all show substantial damage. These crystals, like most of the minerals at Franklin and Sterling Hill, do not grow free standing in pockets. Similar looking garnet specimens from other localities would many times be thrown as not worth having. I have always considered this fascination and mania for Franklin to be some sort of local temporary madness, but it has been going on now for over a hundred years, and there is no sign that sanity is returning to those afflicted. I am including these pictures mostly because the collectors who love this stuff will be upset if I don't

Steven,
Those images are possibly worth of inclusion in the article, but they would first have to be uploaded to the Mindat gallery and not just as attachments to a thread posting. Do you need instructions on how to to that? How to upload mineral images to mindat.

Rock, I have uploaded the first five images the regular way to the Mindat Gallery and my page. The last image has already been uploaded to the Mindat Gallery (Dec.2009) and is already in my photo gallery on my page. Hope these help. The Ball's Hill specimen is a real old-timer from around 1900 with really good luster for the locality.
