Star Garnet

Star Garnet


167mm x 135mm x 241mm
Garnets are often seen in cut stones and sometimes in cabochons, but the "4-rayed Star" effect that is seen in this material is not very common. The "Oval Cabochon" cut stone has a very deep reddish-purple color and is nearly opaque. You need to put in under a strong light for the "star" to show up, but it is a unique gem, and unusually large for the material. You don't see these very often on the market, especially in this size range.
