Dark Umba River Garnet

Dark red garnet rough

  This garnet is a darker red garnet from the Umba River. It will cut good stones but will cut dark for the most part. To get the best performance from this rough you will want to cut a shallow designs but this isn’t always necessary with this material to get a decent stone. Most of these stones are eye clean with just a few having any inclusions. The sizes are typically running 4+cts to over 8cts. These stones are well shaped for good return for your rough.

This red garnet rough is selling for the low price of Just $0.20 a carat or $0.15 a carat if you buy over 500cts or the last of this parcel.
