This African garnet is running around 38% low to high grade facet rough. The remainder is cabbing rough or very thin. This parcel would be good for those of you that send materials overseas for cutting since much of the cabbing or thin material would be good to cut clean but thin stones from. If you don’t mind cutting thin\ narrow stones ( under 4mm ) you could probably increase the low to high grade facet rough up to 50+%. Most facet grade stones in this parcel will cut sub carat sized stones. The average sized rough stone is around or a little under 3cts.
This parcel has potential for a decent profit if in the right hands. We are selling this rough for $0.25 a gram with approximately 365 grams available.
