From an on line article:

During the last couple of years Grape Garnet has emerged as a hot new gemstone in the colored stone market. However, due to its limited production it occupies only a small marketing niche. Nevertheless, many gem dealers and collectors love this stone for its affordability, its unique color, and because it is not normally enhanced.
Eric Braunwart of Columbia Gem House of Vancouver, Washington is the leading mover and shaker in the Grape Garnet market. In an attempt to brand the gemstone, he has trademarked the name Grape Garnet.
Mining and Supply
The original goods were mined in the Naktamunda mine in Orissa in northwest India. According to Braunwart, "Today the new production is in a national preserve in Orissa." From the mine in India, he rejects 50-60% of the production. In cutting they lose another 20-25%. This leaves only 15-30% to be marketed through his alliances.
As the leading market maker of the material, Braunwart buys all the available supply but states, "The bulk of the material is still below a carat." The rough is very large and dirty and it is practically impossible to get large, clean stones.
