Parcel Madagascar Demantoid Garnet 1.00ctw Mixed Shape And Size
Rated 1 out of 5 by LuluMoo Shame on me for expecting more.
Super small assortment of 20 or more gems. I kept them, just in case I can find a pave setting that they could fit into. Otherwise, I'll keep them for 'investment'. Disappointing, though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by notconvinced hahaha on me
haven't ordered much for long time. not much has wowed me and this definetly did not. i believe it was dawn that presented when i saw. she showed a few stones (i should have looked online) & of course said give or take a stone. Well I got 11 stones. that pretty much sums up the size when u divide 11 stones into 1 ctw. largest was not quite 3 mm. rest so small kept getting stuck under my fingernail when i put on scale to weigh entire parcel. pin head size. paying postage again isn't worth sending back so i guess jtv wins. too many parcels the last few years have been like this. i did order a single specific mm demantoid b4 and was happy with that. guess need to stick to known sizes rather than parcels.

I expected small but was hoping there would be one stone that you could do something with. But alas, they were all teeeny, weeenie, tiny. Like glitter. They were returned. Sorry.

Forget the good price, I'll be sending mine back. I wanted to wait until my head cleared from the Christmas crush & I was able to look at this parcel again. But like the majority of other posters, I had a negative experience with this parcel. I received a lot of very tiny stones that would only be good for accent stones in . . . I don't know . . . something. The color is fine. They're decent quality Madagascar demantoids. They aren't supposed to look like Russian demantoids (as another poster suggested). However, JTV doesn't even make settings large enough for the tiny size of the stones I got or I'd set them for the 2nd earring holes I have. Darn! I love demantoid garnets.

This is going back; I was very disappointed. The sample shown on TV and the internet had fewer stones and larger sizes. The parcel I received had a lot of stones so they were very, very small sizes. The largest stone was 1 point and all the others were accent stones. Not worth getting.

I ordered this because I ordered 2 of the Box 19 gemstone parcels awhile back and I really got some great stones. Stones I would never have if I did not order the parcels. I was not for sure if I had any Demantoid Garnets from the parcels so I ordered this to see. And man I'm glad I did. I had over 12 Demantoid garnets from the parcels alone and now I have these as well. In Box 19 parcel I had 3 0.25 round Demantoid garnets and some ovals just a tad bit smaller. This parcel was OK and really let me know what I really had. These were small and make great accent stones or if beginner you can say you have Demantoid garnet in your collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sassalynn 1 mm??
I bought 2 parcels and like the others, they are tiny. The largest out of both parcels is a 1 mm size. Really? I don't see that you could use any as accent stones. Maybe could use for pave work. The color is the only good thing I have to say about the stones. Like another customer, the price to ship them back would be not worth it. I'm keeping only to say that I have them, which isn't saying much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MzKitKat Will be purchasing more parcels now
These are just so cool, and it finally occurred to me that without the smaller awsome gemstones to surround my larger rare and/or expernsive ones, I would have to pay for a jewler to procure something special to surround or compliment anything I want to have made into a ring or pendant or whatever.... I'd rather choose from my own collection, plus the parcel prices can give me a chance to see how incredible a stone, such as a demantoid garnet, really is so I can determine if I want a larger one (the answer to that would be yes) and I can see how nicely they play with other gems. If you have never tried one of these, I think you are missing out....
