Lot of Mandarin Garnet from Nigeria and/or Namibia with the most spectacular pure orange color. These are nice chunky water worn nodules with a bright Mandarin orange color. All of these stones have some inclusions with the bulk being slightly to moderately included. These inclusions are typical for this Garnet species and it is extremely rare to find clean Mandarin Garnets in this size. Most finished stones will be slightly included to moderately included and should cut in the 3+ carat range if cut for yield. There are a few cleaner stones in here that will cut very slightly included; however, there will probably be above average weight loss. This was sent to us as a sample and we are presently working on setting up a steady supply of this rough.
