Item 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. The Rhodolites from Tanzania have some of the most rich colors I've seen from any world locality. This gem is attractive with a rich red color and is nearly eye clean (only very very slightly included). The cut on this stone is a "Concave Round Brilliant" cut. A great fiery little stone from what is proving to be one of the premier localities in the world for the material.
