Description

The deep red color of this pear-shaped garnet cabochon offers lots of design possibilities—use a single stone as an accent, set a pair as a simple pair of earrings or use multiples in the same or complementary colors for complex designs. Traditional red garnet derives its deep color from iron and magnesium. Garnet exhibits few inclusions, and those that are present tend to be rounded, seedlike crystals with irregular edges. Garnet is the birthstone for January.

Garnets are actually a family of closely related stones. The most common color is red, but garnets are also found in green, orange, pink and blue.
