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.  Like both of these, Mali garnet has a high refractive index, giving it a beautiful brilliance, and the high dispersion of demantoid, giving it 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.  While the cut is a commercial cut, its well-done, so I decided not to recut it.  It has lovely dispersion that can’t be captured in this photo.  It weighs 1.78 carats and measures 8.22 x 6.47 x 4.41 mm.
