ALMANDITE GARNET

This is a natural untreated stone i bought on my last trip to Harts range in Australia.  This is a clean stone which shows a stunning fire red colour.

Size 7.00 x 6.95 x 5.10 mm app

Weight 2.30 cts

Almandine occurs rather abundantly in the gem-gravels of Sri Lanka, whence it has sometimes been called Ceylon-ruby. When the color inclines to a violet tint, the stone is often called Syriam garnet, a name said to be taken from Syriam, an ancient town of Pegu (now part of Myanmar). Large deposits of fine almandine-garnets were found, some years ago, in the Northern Territory of Australia, and were at first taken for rubies and thus they were known in trade for some time afterwards as Australian rubies.
