This beautiful Rhodolite Garnet is phenomenal with its perfect blend of purple and red that gives it its classic raspberry color. Even more impressive is its 9mm size! Perfect, perfect, perfect!
I cut this gemstone in a new design I've written. I tested it out on this Garnet, and I think I love it!
This Garnet is eye-clean with no visible inclusions.
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, which means greater brilliance. . 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.
