Thank you for your comment Tobi.
I remember that when I bought it, I said: "that is odd"
Peru is the paradise of sulfides for me; I did not think about garnets. But garnet occurences are countless...

A new one more classic from the Kayes area. I don't know the occurence; maybe I have to refer to a past publication of R Currier in the MR to fix it.

Sulfides ... and quartz ... and fluorite ... and rhodochrosite ... ;-)

No idea of the exact species (almandine or grossular, or a mixture).

If you think that it is not enough, an administrator can delete it.

The best idea for shooting black melanite is a white background ( https://www.mindat.org/photo-559224.html , https://www.mindat.org/photo-559226.html ) ;-)

So it is done. The same specimen with a white background. It seems better.

Hi Philippe, you only wrote that your garnet is from the state of Chihuahua. This specimen is most likely from Ojos Españoles Mine, General Lázaro Cárdenas, Mun. de Julimes, Chihuahua, Mexico ( https://www.mindat.org/loc-17170.html ). This is Chihuahua's good locality for andradite, your specimen looks like a typical one from that locality ...

Thank you Tobi for your help, it is truly possible.
On my records, I just have the state of Chihuahua. The seller gave me only this location;
I have made a bit of research on mindat, and there is another locality other than Ojos Espanoles, that is also possible. So.. may be...

We stay in black.

This one is very special: Self collected 30 years ago in a pegmatite area, south of France. Not the best certainly, but it's mine, and I am very proud of it.

After a long sunny day without finding anything, I had this surprise on the soil near me.
A good "souvenir"

Well, we just don't have the "the best" schorls in Europe, but self-collecting such a (nevertheless nice) and large crystal is really great, congratulations to that find, though long ago ;-) I think this is the first schorl I've ever seen from France!

Schorls are relatively common in some areas of Massif Central, and Britany (granitic pluton with pegmatites)

Sure they are common, but we in Europe usually don't have such large AND aesthetic ones like they occur in Pakistan, Brazil or Namibia ;-)
