(SOLD) Cabochon - Star Garnet - Teardrop

40.00

Star Garnet Teardrop cabochon with 4-ray star - star garnets are usually opaque with deep brownish-red or reddish-black color. The star effect is caused by inclusions of rutile needles and must have the correct alignment to reflect light in a pattern forming a mult-rayed star, mostly 4-ray and rarer 6-ray.

The star effect in most star garnets is subtle and can be seen in bright sunlight and is best seen by looking straight down on the gemstone. It can also be seen with a small bright flashlight.
