1.55 ct. Malaya Garnet

Color:  Medium Dark Brownish-Pink Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Tanzania Cut:  Cushion Mixed
Treatments:  None Measurements:  6 mm

Malaya is an intermediate Garnet species that is defined both by its refractive index range and its color.  The name derives from its inability to fit into the standard Garnet classification - its most frequent translation is 'outcast'.  This is, unfortunately, a very overused term in the marketplace as actual examples that deserve the Malaya name are quite scarce.  This lovely stone is a gorgeous example, completely clean and finely cut as a precision cushion.  Excellent size and quite scarce in this fine, pink-dominant tone.
