Gorgeous Spessartite Garnet Microfaceted Teardrop Briolettes. One of my favorite gems, these stones have gorgeous coppery-red-brown coloring. They are a microfaceted teardrop briolette. One stone has a surface imperfection but these are overall AA-AAA grade quality. They are tip drilled and will work best with dead soft 28 or 26 gauge wire.
