Galaxy Garnet is a formation of Garnets over matrix composed of rare minerals such as Manganocummintonite, Albite, Ca-rich, and others. The matrix has many different colors from reddish brown, black, green and white. This Materias specimen is found in Gore Mountain in up-state New York.
Manganocummintonite – Originally named mangan-cummingtonite in 1966 by Hugo Strunz in allusion to its composition, containing MANGANese, and its relationship to cummingtonite.
In order to better distinguish between amphibole end-member member compositions, the CNMNC has decided to rename manganocummingtonite. In 2016 clino-suenoite was approved and now replaces manganocummingtonite.
