Rhodolite Garnet Rhodolite garnet is the name applied to a mixture of pyrope and almandite. Rhodolite gems tend to be lighter in color than most other kinds of red garnet. It can be easily confused with ruby because of the similarity in color. The mixture of red and violet in rhodolites is highly desirable and popular. Purple or purple-red is the most expensive and sought after color for rhodolite gemstones.
Major sources for rhodolite garnet are Tanzania and North Carolina.
Rhodolite garnet, along with other varieties of garnet gems, are indeed one of the most classic gemstone types frequently used in gemstone rings. Rhodolite is also very-well suited for all other types of gemstone jewelry too, including gemstone earrings, pins and brooches, as well as in necklaces and fashionable gemstone pendants.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
