Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .25ct 4x4mm Trillion. Gemstone Mined In The United States And Cut In China.

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!

Red, as red can BE!I really LOVE anthill Garnet! The story is fabulous, that it is pushed up from the ground by ants, and collected by Native Americans! I have never seen another stone that is SUCH a pure red, as this Pyrope. My stone weighs .35ct and is 4x4mm. It is well cut. My only issue is that it is VERY small looking, but then 4x4 always is...lol. August 31, 2013
