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.

Bidding starts at 7BTC and increment is 1BTC



Your satisfaction is always 100% guaranteed.



1.40 carats



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.
