Rough Garnet Specimens

These are rough Garnet fragments from around the world, available in a few different grades.

The pieces measure around 4-10MM each; they are suitable for small scale lapidary projects including inlay.

Our current stock includes:

  • Pack of 55.4ct - 14 pieces - decent colour throughout with minimal inclusions etc.
  • Grade A - sold singly, good quality pieces with nice colour. Mixed locales.
  • Grade C - low quality specimens from Madagascar, often very dark but red can be seen when backlit. Sold as 50 gram packets - the packet I checked was around 50 pieces.

 

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.

The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade - but some photographs are still on their way!

    Small shards of extraordinary colour, almost impossible to take your eyes off this unearthy pink-red stone. Excellent to mix with clear stones or set on top of selenite. A conversational piece in your living room if all else fails.
    I cannot wait to get more of these in slightly bigger size! Thank you Albion.
