Description

The wine-red color, clarity and good play of light of this pear-shaped faceted garnet make it an appealing choice for custom jewelry designs of all types. 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.

The pear cut is a hybrid of the oval and marquise cuts; it is usually oriented with the point uppermost.
