Orange Grossular Garnets range from a yellow-orange to orange to red-orange color. They are visually similar to their better-known cousin Spessartite.

Garnets are part of a large family of silicate minerals that have similar physical properties but vary in chemical composition.

Grossular Garnets have one of the widest color ranges of any species of Garnet, from near-colorless to yellows, oranges, greens and browns.

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.

These gems are a nice orange option for January birthdays!
