Carnelian (also spelled cornelian) is a reddish-brown mineral which is commonly used as a semi-precious gemstone. Similar to carnelian is sard, which is generally harder and darker. (The difference is not rigidly defined, and the two names are often used interchangeably.) Both carnelian and sard are varieties of the silica mineral chalcedony colored by impurities of iron oxide. The color can vary greatly, ranging from pale orange to an intense almost-black coloration.
Overall the gem is ok except that there is a small chip near the edge of the garnet if look at it carefully and was not highlighted in the ad.2.52 CTS CERTIFIED SPESSARTITE GARNET-DEEP COLOURS (GNR48)
