Garnet

 

Red garnets have a long history, but modern gem buyers can pick from a rich palette of garnet colours: greens, oranges, pinkish oranges, deeply saturated purplish reds and even some blues. Red garnet is one of the most common and widespread of gems but not all garnets are as abundant as the red ones. A green garnet, tsavorite, is rarer because it needs unusual rock chemistries and special conditions to form Demantoid is a rare and famous green garnet, spessartine (also called spessarite) is an orange garnet, and rhodolite is a beautiful purple-red garnet.
