Product Description
Arizona Anthill Garnet Average . 45ct 5mm Round. The Gemstone Was 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!

Something new
This is a gemstone I had never heard of. When I opened the package I was kind of sorry I'd spent the money on this stone. But when I took it to a light source it almost exploded with color. It showed red, purple and orange flashes. In the sunshine it is even prettier. I'm not sorry at all I purchased this gemstone.

Well, this was hands-down the most beautiful of all of my Garnets. It also has incredible fire and brilliance, like red lightning. This stone is so much more than a picture on the internet could ever do justice It's my new crush!

I have many, many garnets-all different types and colors-but THIS one takes the prize for being pure, spectral, deep RED!! Take it out in the sunlight to really appreciate its' beauty, you won't be disappointed!! Buy an Anthill Garnet just for the RARITY, and the story behind it!

Love them
Bought 2 to make stud earrings and love them. They have great fire and and are a little darker than expected,but I pair them with my heart shaped burma rubies and you can't tell which is which. Very happy also because the sizes actually match. I have trouble pairing stones from jtv because they are not always the same when purchasing more than 1 at the same time, but these were. Try them, you'll love them.

I love gems
I am so glad that I was able to purchase Anthill Garnet this time. I also purchased the 14 carat gold earrings castings. This is far by side my best purchase ever.
