Salida, CO Elks Lodge Collection
The Elks Club in Salida, Colorado housed a display of several diverse mineral suites from Leadville, Bisbee, the Tri-State district and others, many with historic labels affixed to the specimens. The club decided to dispose of the collection, and we bought it this spring (2014).
This is one of the one-off specimens in the collection, a very nice large piece of Wrangell garnet. Large crystals in the classic black schist and the old label right in the middle of the display face make for a great display piece.
