Discovered in Northern China, this semitranslucent to opaque garnet material is named after the famous city of Kashgar, known as the Oasis City along the "Silk Road" trading route that links Asia from east to west. Attention-grabbing marbled red and green earth colors, this stone takes polish well for exquisite shine, adding to its appeal. Hard stone for long-wearing jewelry designs that can withstand heavy wear. Colors, shapes and sizes may vary in each lot.
