Incredible Purple Garnet!

"Wow" is all I can say [3.11 ct Royal Purple Garnet]!  I have never seen one of these grape garnets in person. It is incredible, Ron! And they're so affordable. Purple gems are really tricky... I don't care for the muted shades of purple you typically find in untreated sapphires and spinels, and I wanted something a bit more high-end than a Uruguayan amethyst. There's not much left in the purple family when you eliminate those choices. So this stone worked out perfectly.  Thanks again for your help!
