Great stone.The price for the quality JTV offers for this stone can't be matched by anyone else in my opinion. I got this at auction which made it even cheaper. No inclusions or cracks, lovely red color and beautiful faceting. This will go great in a ring, pendant or a pair of earrings. Garnet is one of my favorite gems so I am so happy I can get stones like this at such a great price. February 13, 2015

Gorgeous ColorThis was my first purchase with JTV, and my first time buying a loose gemstone. I couldn't pass on the price for this beautiful Mozambique Garnet, one of my favorite stones. Shipping was fast, and the packaging was secure and confidential. I was happy the box didn't advertise the contents. I am so impressed with the stone. Sizing is true, 10x7 mm, and the stone is cut beautifully...visibly symmetrical and proportioned like an ideal pear shape. But the color is what will bring me back to JTV for more stones of this quality. This Garnet has a glossy deep red color like a fine Cabernet Sauvignon, with flashes of cherry fire when it hits the light. Truly stunning, and a steal at under 20 dollars. My only negative comment its that JTV only offers two castings for this calibration, and both are pendants. December 10, 2013
