    Thank you Little Chick. I will look up Kashgar Garnet – have not hear of it. But you are right really pretty stone. Fell in love with it as soon as I spotted them. They were a bit pricey – but hey – who can put a price on love. HA HA

    I do believe it is Kashgar Garnet too. I bought some at the bead show in St Paul last year and it looks just like this stone! Great design by the way!
