Fashioned in 14K gold, this enchanting ring is destined to turn heads. When most people think of garnet, they think of the common red garnets like almandine and pyrope. But the garnet family is actually remarkably diverse. Garnets can occur in nearly any color, including brown, yellow, orange, red and purple.The green garnets are among the rarest. Recently we've been lucky in finding some excellent specimens. The garnet group is conventionally divided into 6 species: Pyrope, almandite, spessartite, grossular, andradite and uvarovite. The different garnets share a similar crystal structure, but differ slightly in their chemical compositions.
Green garnets are found in both the grossular and andradite types. Grossular garnets include two green garnets - the yellow-green grossularite and the chrome green tsavorite. The name "grossular" comes from the botanical name of the gooseberry, grossularia.The garnet known as grossularite is typically golden green, yellow-green or olive-green. The rarest grossular garnet is tsavorite, which is a rich green to emerald green garnet variety found only in Kenya and Tanzania. The outstanding green of tsavorite is thought to be due to trace amounts of chromium and/or vanadium.
