Todd, I recommend that you look into The Joseph P. Stachura Co., Inc.
They have 3&4mm garnets at 10 and 20 cents each, and some other
stones from 30 cents to a dollar. Price breaks for lots of 12 and
144. Sometimes there is one in the 12 that has a scratch on the top,
but at those prices, it doesn't matter very much.
just a satisfied customer...
