Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .60ct 5.5x5.5mm Trillion. Gemstone Mined In The United States And Cut In China.

Pyrope garnet, long known for its saturated red color, is found in various world locations. But a very special variety is homegrown in the USA-Anthill Garnet. But how does such a beautiful gem get such a strange-sounding name? Found primarily in the four corners area of Arizona, which meets with southwest Colorado, northwest New Mexico and southeast Utah. These small Garnets are called Anthill Garnets because they are mined by ants. It is the ants that do the excavation work when digging or remodeling their anthills! Pyrope Garnet, including Anthill Garnet, is generally a purer red than other Garnet varieties. It's easy to see how they could be confused for Ruby with their fiery red color. The name Pyrope is derived from "pyropos" meaning fire-like or fiery-eyed. Never mined commercially due to limited supply, AntHill Garnet is collected by locals after occasional rainstorms. Fiery in color, Anthill Garnets are an extraordinary American Gem!

Review This Product
Amazing Stone(s)I'm also reviewing G1S005, which isn't coming up. Princess cut is perfect and inner fire is amazing. The Trillion is great also. The fire inside is bright and both stones are clear looking from the back. The clarity, cut and color of both stones are really top quality. Very impressed with this particular stone and it's oddity. Plus it's American as well. Not from elsewhere like most stones. February 15, 2013

Other garnets more livelyWhile the harvesting of this gem is indeed interesting, the garnets I received were not near as brilliant as the ones shown on TV. I'm sure the TV lighting has a lot to do with that. I returned a larger one that was too dark. I am returning one of the two of these I purchased, again because it has very little brilliance. I have other garnets that are much more attractive. April 12, 2010

ANT HILLI love the story behind these garnets. They may be small but they pack a punch. Great color and cut. This one weighs .75cts and is loupe clean. I also got two 5mm rounds and this trillion is brighter and flashes more color. I wish I had ordered two of these instead. March 27, 2010
