Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .75ct 5x5mm Square. 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
A Must Have For The Serious CollectorKind of surprised that this came in lighter than advertised at .70 points. Most gems are 10-25% heavier than the advertised weight. As rare as larger ones are, no problem. Probably to dark to set in jewelry, yet this is my all time favorite garnet species. Damantoid and tsavorite are close seconds, the story and color is just to cool. No serious gem collection is complete without one of these, or like my collection, several of these. Happy hunting....
