These are Pyrope Garnets from Arizona. They are known as "Anthill Garnets". They are gathered by Navajo indians who live there and are not available commercially. All are small stones (under 1/2 ct cut). They are brought to the surface where they occur by ants. These little stones are very clean, well cut and are a fabulous blood red ruby color that I can only describe as "screaming red". Enjoy while supplies last.
