Product Description

Anthill Garnet Average .45ct 6x4mm Oval. Gemstone From Arizona.

Garnet 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!

Thanks AntsAs a teacher and a garnet lover ( they aren't treated) this is a must for any collection. This is about as big as they get and their color is wonderful. An A+ to JTV for "unearthing" them. August 27, 2013

Beautiful color!Ordered 21 Jan., received 25th. I purchased 2 stones. one was ~0.43ct the other was ~0.48 ct. The smaller of the two had a large inclusion under the table which was very visable. Since we can't split the order I have returned both for exchange. (28th Jan.) I like the color, they were well made, reasonable ct. weight . Just that ugly inclusion! I'm looking forward to the replacements. May 03, 2013

Better than a High-End RubyWow. This little stone packs a saturated punch. It's too bad none of JTV's photographs show the stones' true beauty. If they did, I am sure alot more of them would sell. Definitely a must for a collector or jewelry making. May 03, 2013

Most beautiful color I've ever seen!!This is my favorite gem. I first purchased the gem for my daughter in law, Jazmine, its her birthstone. The story about this stone intrigued me, so I had to have one. Jaz is in the Navy, and her first visit home after bootcamp, I gave her the earrings I made with the garnets, she loved them. They were so pretty, I bought 4 more, now, they are an obsession to collect. I have checked ebay and the internet, Jtv has the best prices and selection. May 03, 2013
