If you love deep red colours you can go past this Australian garnet from NSW. The colour announces itself as strong and vibrant. We have set it in a sterling silver claw setting. The garnet is 1.85ct. It measures 11mm x 6.5mm. Presented on a 45cm sterling silver curb chain.
Garnets are the birthstone for January. Australia produces almost half of the world garnets, with the rest mainly coming from India, USA, and China. Garnets have also been extracted from Broken Hill in New South Wales (see Google Arts and Culture) and Harts Ranges in Northern Territory since the 1880s, as a by-product of mining other minerals from metamorphic rocks. One Of A Kind piece, made in Melbourne.
