Product Description
Arizona Anthill Garnet .45ct Minimum 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!

The American Splendor Collection is our salute to the magnificent gems and minerals of the United States. Rivaling the beauty and splendor of gems found across the globe, each is a prime example of many of the most desirable gems available today. From dazzling Herkimer quartz of New York to vibrant garnet and peridot of Arizona to the beautifully unique opals of Oregon's high deserts, each gemstone carries the pedigree of being born in the USA. Collect the wonder of America's own gems and minerals today at Jewelry Television and jtv.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique stones I'd like a bit larger one. Thanks JTV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these garnets I am not a fan of garnets, but these anthill garnets are prettier and more vivid than the other garnets I have. I got these on a whim because of the fact that the ants dig them out and humans are not allowed to mine for them. The very idea that these tiny ants push them to the surface is mind-boggling. These garnets are more light catching and more beautiful than the "not anthill" garnets which I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great examples of wonderful gem I ordered 4 of these stones ,and they were all 4 perfect examples of what an anthill garnet should be. Deinitly worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THESE ARE TRULY UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL & VIBRANT! The most amazing depth of vibrant red that I have ever seen! Truly unbelievable and beautiful with brilliant clarity and fire, as well...VERY appealing to the beholder's eyes! :-) Plus, the story of these lovely gems, along with their beauty...Is beyond a doubt a most awe inspiring tribute to The Greatest Artist Above! It Is also a reminder of the words at Proverbs 6:6-8, "Go to the Ant, you lazy one; Observe its ways and become wise. Although it has no commander, officer, or ruler, It prepares its food in the summer, And it gathers its food supplies in the harvest." These little stones are proof of this hard gathering work! :-) And to burrow and make room for their food, they unknowingly also become diligent little 'miners'...Bringing these breath taking little garnets to the surface! :-) So that after the rain comes and they are washed and then gathered up, we all benefit from all of those combined efforts...By then getting to enjoy these little treasures to the fullest! :-) Now, you just can't beat that! :-) Plus, I also love that I get to have a few more local gems in my jewelry collection, as well. These Arizona Anthill Garnets will be the PERFECT size for my second hole ear piercings after they are set into the 14K yellow gold earring castings. And, I plan to wear them with my Burma Ruby Studs that are a little bit larger in size! :-) They two together will definitely only compliment each other with their beauty and elegant presence. Thus, I personally HIGHLY recommend these Arizona Anthill Garnets! You just will NOT be disappointed!!! :-) FOR THEY ARE TRULY UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL AND VIBRANT!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for studs...the color is breathtaking. I gave a pair to my friend for her Jan. B day. She loves them.
Date published: 2015-01-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arizona Beauties! I bought two of these and couldn't have done better if they were sold as a matched pair. Each weighed .50 ct, so my pair is a 1.00cwt. They are cut beautifully with the same pavilion depth and the 5 mm size for each will make a great pair of earrings or side stones for a ring or pendant if I decide to have them set into jewelry. The color is open and a vibrant red. I am so pleased those little Arizona ants pushed these up so I could add them to my collection!!!
