1.17 ct. Arizona 'Anthill' Garnet

Color:  Dark Red Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Garnet Ridge, Near Dinnehotso, Apache Co., Arizona Cut:  Round Brilliant
Treatments:  None Measurements:  6.5 mm

A famed American stone, these chrome Pyropes are the so-called Arizona 'anthill' Garnets.  A lively and intense red bodycolor that is essentially unmatched by Pyrope garnet from other localities.  It is a dark color, but essentially a pure red one.  These have been mined for many decades for use as accent stones - they are quite rare in weights in excess of 1 carat.  The stone is completely clean and the cutting is excellent - a calibrated size even.

$120 / carat - $140 total
