Nigeria is the source of many fine gemstones, including some beautiful spessartine garnets such as this one. This garnet is beautiful bright orange color, with no secondary hue or tone to darken it. While there is a tiny amount of tiny inclusions, this is fairly typical for spessartine garnet and they are not objectionable in the hand. I have factored them into the pricing, making this a great value for the size and color.
I faceted this gem in modified version of the classic diamond round brilliant design; the result is a glittering beauty of a gem. The garnet weighs 2.36 carats and measures 7.3 x 5.3 mm. It would make quite a statement as the center stone of a unique ring!
