VARIETIES OF GARNET COLOR
· Color-Change Garnet - Garnet that exhibits a different color in natural and artificial light. Color-Change Garnet is a intermediary mix between the Pyrope and Spessartite (though closer in composition to Pyrope), and presents a color change from a light brownish, yellowish, or greenish in daylight to a pink or purplish color in incandescent light. A few rare specimens may even have a bluish color, which is extremely rare for Garnet.
· Demantoid - Olive-green to emerald-green gem variety of Andradite Garnet.
· Gooseberry Garnet - Light green to light greenish-brown variety of Grossular Garnet.
· Hessonite - Orange to orange-brown, transparent variety of Grossular Garnet.
· Imperial Garnet - Light pink, transparent gem variety of Grossular Garnet.
· Leuco-garnet - Colorless, transparent variety of Grossular Garnet.
· Malaya Garnet - Reddish-orange form of Spessartite Garnet (or more accurately a mixture intermediary between Spessartite and Pyrope) that originates in the Umba River Valley in Tanzania and Kenya. This term is sometimes also used as a synonym for Spessartite.
· Mali Garnet - Garnet gemstone from the African country of Mali that ranges in color from green to yellow to brown (though most often a greenish-yellow). The deposit of these Garnets was discovered in Mali in 1994, and this form of Garnet is a relatively new gemstone. The scientific classification of the Mali Garnets are not clearly identified; they can be either Grossular or Andradite, though are usually an intermediary form closer in chemical structure to Grossular.
· Mandarin Garnet - Bright orange to orange-red Spessartite Garnet, usually originating from the African countries of Namibia and Mozambique.
· Melanite - Lustrous, opaque black or very dark red variety of Andradite Garnet.
· Mint Garnet - Grossular Garnet with a light-mint-green color.
· Mozambique Garnet - Red Garnet from the African country of Mozambique, which produces fine quality Garnet gemstones. Mozambique Garnet is usually Almandine, but may also be Pyrope.
· Raspberry Garnet - Raspberry-red variety of Grossular Garnet.
· Rhodolite - Rose-red form of Garnet with a light color or more purplish color than typical Garnet gemstones. It is usually an intermediary variety between Pyrope and Almandine, though more closely towards Pyrope in composition.
