Description

This is a green grossular garnet from Kenya. While many people are familiar with red garnet varieties, garnet can also come in shades of green, from pastel sage-y to vivid kiwi to a deep green that rivals emerald, called Tsavorite. On every buying trip to Kenya and Tanzania, ANZA Gems looks for green garnets: sometimes we find them, sometimes we don’t. With a hardness that works well for wearing everyday, and a refractive index higher than emerald, green garnets make a great choice in this color spectrum. Garnets are not treated or altered in anyway.
