A fine pallete of rare, natural colors
Grossular Garnets have one of the widest color ranges of any species of Garnet, from near-colorless to yellows, oranges, greens and browns.
Some of the trade names for Grossular Garnets include Tsavorite (green), Mint Grossular (pastel green), Hessonite (orange) and Leuco (near-colorless).
Garnets are part of a large family of silicate minerals that have similar physical properties but vary in chemical composition.
Garnet is the birthstone for January, celebrates the 2nd Anniversary and comes in almost all colors of the spectrum including the rare color-change material.
Lots of choice for January birthdays!
