Star Garnet tumblestones
These lovely red tumblestones all exhibit a rare form of asterism which forms a star or cross shape on the surface, hence the name ‘star Garnet’.
Star Garnets are only found in India and in Idaho, USA.
It is quite uncommon for these stones to become tumblestones – although, as you can see from the photos, these aren’t exactly cutting grade stones.
Most of the ‘asterisms’, for want of a better word have four arms and are a rough X shape. I have seen some with six arms, although not as tumblestones.
