    Notes:
    This gem was cut by Dana from a 7.07 carat alluvial rough he got from his friend in Tanzania in 2010. It is totally natural and the RI is 1.758 which throws it in the Rhodolite family but it is red, red which is kind of rare as most have more purple or pink. When Dana got this parcel he was so excited as it was a large parcel and had about 20 different hues of garnet in the bag. Dana loves cutting this stuff as he never knows how light will effect the coloring of these mystery garnet gems. It is a very lovely gem that will make a great ring or pendant gem. Dana has a standing order to his friend for another bag like this; but it has been 7 years and nothing like that lot has arrived at our door.
