Rough Garnet for Lapidary
These are a reasonably high grade of rough Garnet, with a lovely red colouration throughout.
The pieces measure around 4-10MM each; they are suitable for small scale lapidary projects including inlay. An experienced lapidarist may be able to facet some.
Garnet is a fairly hard gemstone – these pieces can certainly be cut and polished, though. We have cut one with a Dremel cutoff tool, and polished some using a lapidary grinder – just make sure to work them wet.
