Merelani Mint Garnet

MerelaniMintGreen
Beautiful and lively mint green grossular garnets have been coming out of the Tanzanian mining area of Merelani for many years now, but not everyone realizes how challenging a task it is to find clean saturated stones , especially in larger sizes. As with its more saturated sibling Tsavorite, clean stones above 1 – 2 carats are very rare, particularly in nicely saturated mint colors; a great value compared to Tsavorites of the same size.

Untreated and natural with a Mohs hardness of 7.5, Mint Garnet is perfect for any type of jewelry, and will radiate its cool and refreshing mint green color forever. Perfect for todays trends of light and bright colored gemstone designs.

A New Find: Color Change Garnet from Kenya

Gems with phenomena have always held our fascination. When thinking of “fine color change”, Alexandrite is what comes to mind. What makes this particular find of Color Change Garnet from Kenya special, is that among them are some stones that duplicate the color change of Alexandrite. The other types of color change garnet  mined there also have very good color change, but in a different range of colors, very beautiful in their own right. These types usually are a lot less expensive and more plentiful.

I had a few jewelers and dealers look at some nice stones I was displaying in Tucson, saying that if not told; by the color change alone they would have thought for sure these were Alexandrites.
