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.

The store was really easy to navigate and search through. Found exactly what I was looking for, and the price was great!
Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
