 This is relatively new material from Massachusetts. It is dark red Almandine garnets embedded in a Graphite schist. 

It takes two hours to prep each specimen and the miners prepared the whole lot before having it out in the market. 
They were first shown in Springfield. The preparation includes clearing out the Graphite schist of the back portion where the garnets are, so the light can pass when you backlight it, and shows how bright red they are. 
The largest Garnet crystal on this piece is about 10mm. Exquisite material. 

The measure for the specimen is 4.9 x 2.3 x 0.8 cm
