ITEM DESCRIPTION: From my personal gem collection are these two lovely slightly purple-Red Almandine Garnets from Idaho, USA. Mined and cut by my great-uncle.
Both gems have slightly domed backs that aid in presenting an optimal top view. The pear shape has good clarity with a few inclusions. The oval is a Star Garnet with a well-oriented four-ray star. (I do not recommend having the backs flattened as this may alter the top view; the star may fade or disappear.)
