Thanks Dick & Mark, it also contains pyroxmangite, in the pic you will see some long crystals running along the bottom left, I have some that has been tested from a friends mine in my region and these look the same, 60 mm long, I do still find good red but getting rare, all the rhodonite we have found so far has a thick manganese layer, easily 1 in thick, still only scratching the surface, this sits on the peel fault zone, I have a copper deposit that's close by, heaps of metamorphic rocks, interesting about the yellow garnet, will love some more input on that. have not found any large crystals that would facet, but have seen some from our region.
