Description

In 1994 a new type of garnet was discovered in the African nation of Mali.  A mix of two relatively rare and valuable gem garnet types–andradite and grossularite–this new garnet was named “Mali Garnet” in honor of the locality of discovery.  The most well-known gem grossular is tsavorite, and the most well-known andradite gem is the rare demantoid.  Because of the demantoid content, Mali garnet has a relatively high refractive index and dispersion, giving it excellent brilliance and a lovely “fire.”  The color can range from brownish to a bright green, with rarity and value increasing as the color follows that trend.

This Mali garnet is a beautiful yellow-green color and it has lovely dispersion that can’t be captured in this photo–making it reminiscent of a colored diamond.  The garnet is faceted in my custom “Testudo” brilliant oval design, creating a brilliant and dispersive gemstone.  It weighs 0.92 carats and measures 6.3 x 4.7 x 4.1 mm.  It is very clean, appearing all but flawless with a 10x loupe.
