I attempt to accurately represent and describe cut stones and rough
as to appearance, size, origin and fully disclose any known
treatments in its description. Because you view the images on a
different monitor with different settings, color is particularly fickle
to represent, but I do my best.

It is an intense purple pink color that has that extra kick that makes
people say "Oooooh!" This stone has at least one miniscule
inclusion that I saw once, but that I can't find again. This design is
the same as a garnet I bought from Jeff Graham, which you can
see below. (click on the picture to see a larger view).
