    There's been a lot of garnet love lately (Chrono's tsav, AJ's new ring, Ltl and Harriet's Spesses, and the lovely malayas from Barry's last drops!)

    So I thought I'd start this thread and see how much love it got :) It'd be kind of neat to have pics of garnets in one thread to show the variety and versatility of this wonderful (and ever popular) gem!

    Ok, I'm going to hunt down some pics now :) Some of my favs:
    MINE's spess ring:

    Thank you, MTG. What a great thread. I am a relatively recent convert to garnets, but I''m head over heels in love with them. Looking forward to more beautiful pictures. [​IMG]

    My 9mm green grossular - have to figure out what setting I''m going to use for it. In the upper left hand corner is part of my apple green sphene.
