I just received my coticule from the vault and had a geologist friend look at it. He told me that there is rock very similar to this in Maine a couple hours up the coast from Portland. A bit of research and I stumbled upon this: http://rruff.geo.arizona.edu/doclib/cm/vol39/CM39_1021.pdf Yep, New England Coticule Veins with Garnets. So when the semester is over I am going to head up the coast with him and we are going to check out the rocks. Hopefully I will be able to get at least a few hones to send out to testing. As homage to Bart, I would be honored if you would take one of the first batch as a gift.
