    OK, I gave an umbalite ring a fancy name, but it just make me think of fancy fruit punch.
    The stone first: an 8x8mm unbalite from Precision Gems

    This is what I see:

    It changes color. Sometimes more reddish, sometimes more purple, or a mixture.

    I love the stone and the setting!! Stunning!

    Does the stone go dark in some lighting? Asking as I don’t have any reddish garnets and would like to learn more. Thanks. :P2

    Yes. It goes dark in low lighting, unlike my other stones (tourmaline, mint garnet, chrysoberyl). And it is totally meh in fluorescent lighting. Otherwise, it just loves to show off its many faces.

    It’s gorgeous in your pics. The faceting is really beautiful. And thanks for mentioning the rest of the stones.

    Don’t have many garnets but since it’s my daughter’s birthstone I see many more on my horizon. :P2

    Do you mind sharing where you got your beautiful setting from?

    Very pretty!
    Is this a concave cut? If so - it’s the only one ever that’s ever caught my eye in a good way.
    Looks beautiful on you too!

    arkieb1, chroman, T L, Thank you for the compliments.

    Yes. It is a concave cut. Thank you.

    I love it! It is beautiful and it is fun: looking into it, I sometimes have this "big bang" imagination, red/purple light rays coming at me.
