Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .90ct 6.5x6.5mm 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
Deep red in colorThis stone is darker than on TV, but not as dark as the picture. I can't wait to set it in the semi mount I got from JTV for it. I especially can't wait to tell the story when people ask about the ring..... November 28, 2011

Excellent ColorGreat red color without brown overtones seen in most other red garnets, but just a little bit dark. Very nice fire under incandescent light, but rather lifeless in daylight. Had two minor chips that will not show when set.. While the color and 1.00 Ct weight of the stone received was a pleasant surprise, still considering whether the clearance price paid is justified given the above issues. November 11, 2011

No "pop"I opened the package with much anticipation only to be left wondering what all the hoop-la was about. The story behind ant hill garnet is interesting, but there was no sparkle or bright flashes as shown on TV. I have other garnets that are much more lively and bright. I returned it. July 10, 2011
