From a fascinating new Garnet discovery comes this lovely Burmese Grossular with the soft pink hue of Rose Quartz. These have recently been found in the Pein Pyit area of Mogok - stones are either colorless or, more unusually, this light pink. Fairly large for what we have seen so far, this one is well cut and bright - a few tiny veils do not effect the near eye status while face-up. Pink Grossular is quite uncommon, we have seen only a few scattered pieces from early Tanzanian finds over the years. Lovely and rare; the color is actually even somewhat more saturated with the stone in-hand.
