Description:Rhodolite Garnets are some of the most vivid and beautiful gems in the Garnet family. Originally the term Rhodolite was used to describe the gem variety of Pyrope, but now it's used for any red to pinkish gem in the Pyrope-Almandine series. These stones are beloved for their great color and large size stones. Here we have a very attractive pinkish-red Rhodolite Garnet from Tanzania. The color is saturated, and when it is well lit, the color really comes out. It is virtually eye clean with a "Concave Emerald" cut. The color is just gorgeous in this gem, and you don't see as many of these stones from east Africa on the market these days. Good gem Rhodolites are few and far between worldwide, especially with such beautiful color.
