Welcome to the Red Garnet Page. The sub type (Malaya, Rhodolite, Umba etc) will be listed in the description if available. Garnets with colors other than red will be posted in the "Other Colors" button in the Garnet directory. Garnets are my fav stone to cut and I regularly use them when showing the ropes to a new cutter or just sitting down to cut a "Special". Take a look at the second pic above. That's a Rhodolite cut in a variation of my friend and fellow cutter Marco Voltolini's "Tribal" cut.
