To geologists, Garnet is really a family of stones, each grading into each other with slightly
varying and overlapping chemical compositions. To gemologists,
Garnets are usually divided into 3 categories: the most common
Red/Burgundy Garnets, the
Green Garnets (Uvarovite/Tsavorite) and, the also rare,
Orange/Cinnamon Garnets called
Hessonite. One of our favorite gemstones? Green Garnet. Heavy and substantial, a beautiful green
and quite rare. African Jade is really a massive green Grossularite Garnet.
