These dramatic Heirloom Garnet Pierced Earrings reflect the many gemstones curated by our National Gem and Mineral Collection at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, its over 375,000 individual specimens include a regal antique hair comb exquisitely jeweled with pyrope garnets.
Most often reddish in color, garnets (rock-forming minerals with a crystal structure) are actually a family of 15 distinct minerals in colors of every shade with the exception of blue. Five are commonly used as gemstones. The most popular garnets are pyrope (usually dark red) and rhodolite (raspberry red or purplish-red). Garnet is the official birthstone for January.
