Pyrope is in the opposite corner of the garnet family, when seen from almandine’s position. 

Together as pyrope-almandine-garnets they mix many beautiful gems with juicy names and pretty colors, like raspberry or rhodolite. New discoveries, and their marketing, are to be expected over the next decades.

Pure pyrope, as pure almandine, is a theoretical possibility but usually they are found mixed together in varying percentages and/or with other garnet varieties like andratite thrown in. If a garnet is mainly pyrope, the gem labs will call it as such even if every pyrope has a bit of almandine in it.

The name pyrope derived from Greek for ‘fiery’. Though they can have great ‘fire’ I don’t think the old Greeks meant fire as in ‘dispersion’ but as in ‘fireplace', as the glow of ember or coal, a deep red with an orange tint to freshen it up.

Rough pyrope comes in full sizes and is a frequent visitor to precision cut lapidaries. Very expensive rough, like unheated ruby, rarely sees the precision cutter’s office. It used to be a simple financial problem of cutting BIG before cutting NICE, but today, with more and more customers valuing quality over quantity the truly expensive rough is already cut as good as possible in the mining country, either in the best traditional cutting under the hands of a true master or even with the first precision cut machinery and CAD software installed in Colombo or India.

In pyrope, you should get a fine cut and a fine price for the red gem world.
