Spessartine Garnet Gemstone

This family of Garnets is orange to reddish orange  in  colour  and  can  be  found  in  China,  America, Nigeria, Namibia and Madagascar.

Mandarin  Garnet  (also  known  as  Tangerine  Garnet),  as  its  name  suggests,  is  a  stunning  orange  gem  and  is  one  of  the  most  valuable members  of  the  Spessartine  family.  It  was only discovered last decade, and as well as its  fascinating colour it also benefits from amazing brilliance.

Its colours are more like imagining a sunset over a desert or picturing the skin of a peach, rather than the bright orange of the Easyjet logo and are as fascinating to  study  as  a  Padparadscha  Sapphire.
