Origin Tanzania: Mandarin Garnet
The second gemstone is mandarin Garnet. In Tanzania you can find the most vivid orange but nearly all have black spots inside the crystal. For that reason most mandarin garnets are only used for cabouchons.
The end of the year brings no greater joy than the opportunity to express to you season’s greetings, many thanks and good wishes. We hope that the holidays and the coming year will bring you joy and success. Please note that our office will be closed from December 22nd until January 7th 2018 inclusive. We will be back in the office starting January 8th 2018.
Sparkling and colorful greetings from your team at HC Arnoldi
Royal Purple Garnet
This type of garnet became popular between 2014 and 2015. For a garnet this purplish color was something new and even for the whole gemstone world there are not many stones with such an intense deep purple. The high refraction of a garnet on top makes an amazing and fascinating “new“ Gemstone. The chemical structure of this garnet contains two well known garnets, Almandin and Rhodolite. HC Arnodldi e.K. is always open for something new and we are very happy to have some of this rare material.
We recently bought two lots of wonderful garnets. The green garnet also known as tsavorite is from Tanzania and the purple garnet is from Mozambique also known as royal purple garnet. The tsavorite pair is above 9 cts and the royal purple garnet is above 6 cts.
