This is a beautiful Red Pyrope Garnet from Arizona, USA accented by two Cambodian Blue Zircon set in Sterling Silver! These aren't just your ordinary Garnets though, they are specially mined by ANTS!!! Yes, ants, the 6 legged insects that invade houses and destroy yards! In Arizona, as they are building their "anthills" they move the Garnets through their tunnels and just throw them out! They are considered to be one of the top quality types of red garnets with very deep reds and purples and great clarity and luster! The two Zircon have a great ice blue color with great clarity and luster to set off the Garnet.
Garnet is also the birthstone for January.
These nicely sized 4mm Round Cut Garnet weighs 0.280 cts with 3mm Round Zircon weighing 0.235cts and will go great with any style or occasion. See our many matching earrings and pendants located in our shop!
Anthill Garnets have seen drastic price increases over the past several years as they are getting more difficult to find.
