dozens of garnets are visible in this photo.

|Many garnet deposits are known in Wyoming and there are even reports|
of gem-quality garnets in the Hartville uplift in eastern Wyoming.
I tried to visit most of these areas, but didn't get to them all.
Those in the Hartville uplift near Guernsey still need to be investigated.
These and other garnet deposits are described in my book on gemstones.
