Czech garnets — also known as Bohemian garnets or Prague garnets — are deep red Pyrope gemstones. The finest garnets have been mined in the Czech Republic for several centuries. While most people think of a blood-red stone, garnets come in different colors and types: black and transparent garnets are also common, and there’s a rare green variety of garnet as well.
