Prior to the more recent East African finds, these were the go-to ‘grape’ Garnets. The supply was just never enough of larger stones to make much of an impact in the market, the way the current stones have done. Regardless, the color is unassailable - a rich deep purple that in not common in Rhodolite; there is often much, much more red in the color. A lovely and nicely matched set that are quite competitive.
