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.

i haven't received my purchase yet so i don't have a full opinion.
I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.
Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
