Can you give us a hint where you’re finding these?  Whether it’s from (fill in the blank) state or a garage sale?  Any luck on the scrape test or finding the specific gravity?

Those sure look a lot like the rare garnets that have the “star” in them. I forget what it’s called but when you polish them up they have a cool affect and show a asterisk looking star on the face of the stone when seen in the right light. An old lady gave me a big jar of them. They are so purple they are almost black unless you put a light behind them.
