U.S. faceted mint merelani garnet, 6.93ct
Very large 6.93ct Neony Green Grossular Garnet, faceted in the U.S. from All That Glitters rough, by one of our talented and wonderful cutters. Bright lively gem with hints of dispersion. As expected in this size, there are some small inclusions that can be seen with a loupe, but a plus to indicate natural origin as this large size is not often seen and anything indicating natural crystal growth will be a help in identification. Has a 'glow' which is unexpected for this Garnet Group. Though this comes from the same area as Mint Merelani Garnet (Grossular), a relative of Tsavorite, the brightness and glow is very unlike the typical Mint Merelani as that more common material doesn't necessarily glow like this does. The Garnet Group is very complex and perhaps this has a larger percentage of some element - or perhaps this could even be a new type of Garnet or oddity. This was a difficult gemstone to photograph and to obtain an accurate color. On our laptop monitor, we have an accurate color; with so many devices now displaying images, accurate color is a problem since screens are not calibrated. The photos do not do this gemstone justice as the color is not exactly accurate - there is very little one can do if the photo or video just doesn't show that "pop" that one sees in person. The video color is certainly not close to the color the eye sees - and the true brilliance/sparkle as well as dispersion is not captured, but it goes give an idea of what the gem looks like to some extent. Have recently seen a 1.6+ct round, without the glowing green this gem has, and the retail on it was approximately $2500/ct. A slightly larger than one carat was seen in Tucson (2019) with a wholesale price of $1,500/ct; with this being such a large example of this gemstone species, you will be surprised at our low pricing of $10,349 - which is only $1,500/ct! We would like to increase the price of this as we cannot replace this size, color, cutting, etc. at our current price. (vyg-19-03)

B - A super 1.63ct Brilliant Square Cushion Tsavorite Garnet of a nice deep green without being too light or too dark!
(egaj-11-50) $4,075
This has a great Chrome color and is based on the the 2010 The Guide wholesale value for an Extra Fine Tsavo of this size, color, cutting, etc. Approx dims: 6.5x5.7x5.2mm There was a small scratch on the table and an issue on the culet. Couldn't see this with the unaided eye, but when someone wanted to know the clarity (very eye clean, really nothing under 5x) - we saw these two issues and decided to send the gemstone to our master cutter for some tweaking. Lost about 1.5 point s (0.015cts) - that's how small the issues were and of course, credit goes to our master facetor for his expertise, knowledge and skill!
Actually, the colors of the two pieces above are not too different from each other. Some may describe them as Chrome Green, but certainly nice Tsavos neither too dark or too light!

We just finished our first sculpted gemstone from the rough. It is a Merlani Mint Grossular Garnet weighing 3.63ct. It has several optical dishes on the back and one on the front - it also has an overall shape where a designer can tuck a small diamond or round stone next to the stone as the gemstone has an area that looks like it is made just for this purpose! The color is bright and it is clean. We can no longer purchase the rough at this price....... 3.63ct Grossular Garnet - Sculpted: $7,260 (eagt-03-03c)
Mint Grossular Garnet from Merelani Area (East Africa)

1.99ct Round (eagt-03-03a) $1,990
This material is wonderful and quite rare. It is found in the same area that Tanzanite comes from. In the right light, these stones show quite a bit of dispersion; we didn't expect to see this, but some garnets , like Demantoid, some Mali garnets and Grossular, exhibit this physical property which is the same property found in Diamond! The actual color of the material was difficult to capture. The body colors is a minty green (medium) and is cut using the Portuguese cut and dazzles the eye wilth glitter and sparkle due to the number of facets. (Note that the round has small inclusions, which is typical for this material, but due to the faceting, they cannot be seen readily with the unaided eye).
