Garnet: It's not just sandpaper any more.
These beads, usually from India, are on 15 - 16 inch strands,
temporarily strung, usually on string.
The holes are relatively small.
Garnets are usually dyed, and,
being garnets, they may be raggedly cut and drilled.
It's like the kids were texting when they were supposed to be
concentrating on their drilling and cutting.
The specimens are usually from China.
