I recently found this necklace and another Amber colored necklace at a thrift store. I just loved the color of this one a just assumed it was glass. After trying to find similar made necklaces online, I ran across exact ones listed as pyrope garnet. What do you guys think?

    Maybe this link will help. 4 times a year I attend Gemfaire where I've seen similar beads for very little $. I bought them and then when I actually got around to using them I noticed the white thread had traces of red dye. So, I figured they were dyed but because I didn't pay too much it didn't matter and they've kept their color. Gemfaire again this weekend - if I go (which is a $$$$ disaster for me) I'll ask sellers for some more info.
