The recent discovery of these highly etched but completely terminated Garnets created quite a splash, and you can see why. The luster and clarity are superb, which are complemented by the lovely wine-red color. It is safe to say these have become very sought-after, and this is an excellent example of this recent find because it is so gemmy whil emost are a bit thick to see the color so nicely without holding them on top of a flashlight. It is even better in person.
