A lovely gem Garnet with a most interesting color behavior. In daylight the gem is a slightly purplish-brown shade that can sometimes even have a very slightly green/gold modifier. Incandescent lighting shifts the gem strongly toward the reddish-purple and the look is more like a fine lighter tone Rhodolite. Most lighting will produce a mix along this range - we did our best with the photos; the change is certainly distinct. The gem is eye clean and has a superb cut and polish.
