This gorgeous garnet is a beautiful light peach-pink color, a rare color in garnets. Under incandescent light the color shifts to a light pink. The garnet comes from a recent find outside Mahenge, Tanzania, which has become highly sought after due to the bright open colors. These garnets are in very limited and diminishing supply and the prices for the rough have increased dramatically in recent months. They have outstanding brilliance and dispersion that gives them a beautiful fire in the hand.
This gem has some tiny inclusions but they are not visible without a 10x loupe, making it bright and scintillating in the hand. It is faceted in my custom “Helena” brilliant oval design, cut to high precision. The gem weighs 1.31 carats, and measures 7.0 x 6.0 x 4.4 mm.
