Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .75ct 7x5mm Pear Shape. 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
Aw, Too Bad!Unfortunately this one and an oval I received, have been returned. Both had far too many inclusions for such a small gemstone. It/both had bubble inclusions that were eye-visible. Too bad, as I really wanted to add them to my Ant Hill garnet collection! March 18, 2013
