This is a Mali garnet- from Mali in West African and nowhere else! That's right, this gemstone is only found in a single source country. It is highly valued among gemstone collectors because it is an unusual hybrid- a combination of grossular and andradite garnets. This stone weighs 1.40 carats and is a deep cognac color- a truly beautiful earth tone. It is very, very well-cut so it has a ton of sparkle (brilliance). The dimensions are 7.30 x 6.99 x 4.60mm deep.

Quick- name a city in Mali. Did I stump you? How about Timbuktu. Read this because there will be a quiz:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timbuktu
Melanie and I did NOT go to Mali to buy this stone, but we do know a great many African gemstone traders who bring such stones to Bangkok.
