Comment: Blood-colored garnet, classified as rhodolite by IGI, but IMHO more in the tradition of deep red Ceylon garnets. That means closer to a ruby-alternative than a representative of the singularly intense rhodolites of shiny intense purple-pink which we have presented from Tanzania over the last years. In the same sense, it is priced as pyrope-almandine rather than as rhodolite. One (1) inclusion is visible only under the lens, the gem is showing with a big face-up but no window, and, as always here, without treatments. Flawless hand-cut from the late 70ies. In its dark red, without black-outs, this is not a merry sparkler, but a gem with glowing brilliancy. IGI report, global shipping, grading papers, a plot of rainforest protected in your name and an animal represented in a human-right court.
