Vibrant Lot of Bubble-Gum Pink to Rose Red Tanzanian Umbalite/Rhodolite Garnet Facet Rough. This material was sold to us as Rhodolite Garnet; however, we have not tested it and therefore can not ascertain whether it is or is not Rhodolite. The material is some of the brightest and/or Pinkest Garnet we have seen in quite some time. This Lot is running roughly 75%+ Top Facet Grade. Some stones do have minor inclusions and silk; however, most of these inclusions are confined to the periphery and should facet out or mask up well with a little planning and hard work. There are a few stones in here that will cut slightly to moderately included at best; however, they are a negligible percentage of the lot as a whole.
This is the material you see being sold all around at $8.00+ per carat and at our price we are practically giving it away! We recently got a shipment of this material in from Tanzania and this is 1 of 4 lots of this new rough that we are making available at this time. We are working on establishing a regular supply of this rough and have made significant progress in that endeavor so please do keep an eye-out for more in the future. The lot is priced to sell so don't miss out.
