Product Description
Arizona Anthill Garnet Minimum . 45ct 5x5mm 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!

The American Splendor Collection is our salute to the magnificent gems and minerals of the United States. Rivaling the beauty and splendor of gems found across the globe, each is a prime example of many of the most desirable gems available today. From dazzling Herkimer quartz of New York to vibrant garnet and peridot of Arizona to the beautifully unique opals of Oregon's high deserts, each gemstone carries the pedigree of being born in the USA. Collect the wonder of America's own gems and minerals today at Jewelry Television and jtv. com.

TY hard working little ants !!
I was pleasantly surprised when this garnet arrived today. The color is so much better than the picture -- especially under incandescent lights. Its a deep blood red with tons of sparkle, no bronzy color that would be typical of pyrope garnets. And no visible inclusions. A good match for my Bohemian garnet earrings -- though slightly darker. And what other gemstone can beat this story! A rare beauty, a real conversation starter. You won't be disappointed in this stone.

nice little example
my anthill garnet was not my first, this one has the saturated colour they are known for, the cutting is very good.

Pure sparkling red
This will be an accent stone for a birthstone ring. Took a chance as there was only one left of the Anthill garnet 5mm trillion and one left of the Native Son garnet 5mm trillion. Hoped they would match well enough to use together in the ring. They do match in color. The Native son stone has a little more fire, but they are plenty close enough to use together.

GREAT GARNETS!!
I finally purchased a homegrown gemstone! This little beauty is full of fire and red flashes when the light hits it. Doesn't show any bronze coloring. Under low light conditions it does look a little dark...but hey...it's a garnet! The cut and polish are really top-notch. I am putting it in a pendant setting with an 8x8 trillion ruby that I also purchased from JTV...for a mother-daughter birthstone pendant. Thanks to JTV I am getting back into the jewelry game. Everything I have produced using JTV gemstones and settings draws rave reviews from family, friends, and co-workers.

These garnets are lighted from within
I love garnets of all kinds, but these ant hill garnets are special because of the way they are mined (by ants) and because there is no other red stone that is naturally so intense.

little stones pack a big punch
These stones appear to be black until you shine a light on them. Then, the deepest dark shade of red is evident. I think the ants should be put on some kind of growth burst so we could get bigger stones. Thanks JTV
