- Gems and Jewelry, 8.7 x 5.7 mm; 1.34 carats
Garnet comes in virtually every color of the rainbow. A few years ago, Mali was producing some very attractive light green Grossulars (along with yellow, golden and brown gems), but it seems as though this material has disappeared from the market in recent years. This stone looks very similar to the material from Mali, but came labeled to me as being from Kenya from a very reliable source. This gem is virtually eye clean and has a nice green color with a Pear cut. I think that this is a very underappreciated gem, and this color is not seen very often in Grossular so don't miss out.
