Garnet Crystals

The name "garnet" is derived from the Latin granatum, meaning "seed," in reference to the deep red color of the Garnet crystals. The most common color of Garnet is actually a reddish-brown, but Garnet deposits can be found in every color of the rainbow. Garnet is a heavily treasured and sought-after gemstone. The crystal matrix of garnet is considered to be one of the most amazing product of nature. Garnet crystals typically have a deep red color, although they can appear black, pink, green, orange or yellow depending on the species and the specific oxidation states involved in its formation. Garnet is known for exhibiting extreme hardness but also for its remarkable beauty, making it an invaluable gemstone for jewelry and collectible studies.

Garnet crystals are beautiful and unique minerals that have a wide range of colors, from red and pink to violet and green. They are formed under high temperatures and pressures deep within the Earth and are typically found in metamorphic rock. The most common variety of garnet is called almandine, which is a deep red color. Other popular varieties include pyrope (a deep red to purple color), grossular (a yellow to green color), and spessartine (an orange to red color). Garnets are commonly used in jewelry and are also used as abrasives and in water filtration systems.

Garnets can be found in many parts of the world, including Africa, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Russia and the United States. The largest deposit of almandine garnets in the world is in a metamorphic deposit in upstate New York.
