Abstract

The infrared spectra of birefringent garnets from Asbestos, Quebec, Canada, show strong anisotropy in the OH stretching region, but are devoid of anisotropy in the Fe^(2+) electronic bands and in the SiO_4 overtone region. These results suggest that the birefringence arises from a noncubic orientation of the OH groups that are from a minor hydrogrossular component.
