Product Description

Arizona Anthill Garnet Average .35ct 4.5x4.5mm 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
Pictures don't do justiceOk red is my favorite color to wear and I am in love with "anthills"! The pictures do not come any where near showing what a pretty shade of red this is. I had a ring guard with two trillion peridots around my marquis diamond solitare. The solitare is beat up, not the best quality diamond and it has 20 years of wear and the peridots were beat up too so I replaced them with anthills and those little red stones gave it a face lift. They are so pretty set in yellow gold. I also had a 3 stone ring made in white gold with my scrap gold and I used oval anthills in it and I love it too. The red looks great with white or yellow metal. I would call the shade of it scarlet. When you hold them a certain way they are dark #almost black# and then the light hits them and they seem to have an inner glow. If you read some of the history on "anthills" and garnets in general it's pretty cool. I am certainly a fan. You do have to be somewhat careful with garnets and they do have internal characteristics #not bad# but I still think they are worth it and are very sparkly little stones. July 23, 2013
