Blue Garnet Gemstone

Garnet was said to be available in “all colours  except blue”. That is, until its discovery in 1998  in the Bekily mines located in south Madagascar. What is even more exceptional about this gem is that it is a colour change gemstone - similar to  Alexandrite -  but in this instance the change is from a blue to a stunning purplish pink.

Similar to Malaia Garnet, the gem is a blend  between Pyrope and Spessartine Garnets. The colour change is more pronounced than that of  Alexandrite  and  is  caused  by  the  presence  of  vanadium.
