Are garnets expensive?

Prices range from $500 a carat for good colors with some inclusions, to $1,000 to $2,000 for clean larger stones with top color. Demantoid garnet is the rarest and most valuable of the garnets and is one of the rarest of all colored gemstones. It is remarkable for its brilliance and fire.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the difference between a ruby and garnet?

Garnets and rubies both are gemstones, but rubies are rarer and more valuable than garnets. Rubies, red corundums that contains aluminum oxide and chromium, generally are more valuable than red garnets, so it is important to be able to tell the difference between them when buying gemstones.
