Ant Hill Red Garnets
Ant Hill Garnets are found on and around the margins of ant hills. The ants encounter the garnets while excavating their underground passages. The ants haul the stones to the surface and discard them. The rain washes the garnets clean and moves them down the flank of the ant hill, where they can accumulate and be discovered.
Native Americans discovered them long ago and marveled at their color and beauty. They regarded them as sacred and special. Sometimes they sewed them into ceremonial rattles or gave them as tokens of appreciation or added them to their medicine bag as a gift from Mother Earth.
Ant Hill Garnets have a deep red color and are beautiful as well as special added to pieces of jewelry. Especially for the Native American Indians.
We have a rare few uncut and fully Natural Ant Hill Garnets that we have polished and are ready to add as is to a custom piece of jewelry for our customers who believe they are Sacred and Special. Or for one's medicine bag if desired. Ours come from Arizona! And we design some fine finished jewelry with hand cut Ant Hill Gemstones. Considered Sacred to Native Americans.
