Comment: In the main image this garnet shows rose-pedal shapes though the back-side cut is linear. A tint darker than 3.67 and a pyrope-spessartite rather than a pyrope-almandine, the two gems are very similar in character. In fact, the spessartite part came as a surprise and would theoretically make this a Malaya garnet like 0.67 where the topic is discussed in more depth. But, clearly, this 1.48 has a different color message than the orange-red 0.67 which confused the origin legends for Malaya garnets. Repetitive in good quality but it must be noted: no inclusions (lens clean), no window, and no treatments. Almost 7mm round but only one-and-a-half carat to pay for. Comes to your home free of charge with the full IGI report, grading papers, a 1000sqm of rescued rainforest, pays for animal right lawyers, and will be more fun per $ than most purchases, plus increasing NOT decreasing longterm value, as with almost all other expenditures.
