This beautiful Garnet comes from East Africa and is the beautiful shade of a rich rosé wine. It's a little over 7mm, a great size for a statement ring or pendant.
I cut this gemstone in my own design called 'Stormlight.'
This Garnet is untreated and does have a small inclusion, as seen in the photo and video. The inclusion is not noticeable in hand.
Garnet is the name given to a group of mineral that can come in a wide variety of colors including yellow, green, white and shades of orange to red. Popular varieties are Rhodolite, Grossular, Imperial, and Spessartine. The Garnet has a high refractive index, the same, or higher, than Sapphire. They are quite durable stones ranging on the Mohs Hardness Scale from 6.5 to 7.5, depending on the type of Garnet. They have also been given the privilege of being January's birthstone, though, these are more often portrayed as the blood red Pyrope.
