Garnet Gemstones - The Most Beautiful Gemstone Family
The wonderful thing about garnets is that they are in most cases, one of the most affordable gemstones in the world. The red varieties are plentiful and inexpensive. The more rare colors while not as plentiful are still in many cases more affordable on a per carat price basis than other colored gemstones.
Garnets Come in A Huge Variety of Colors
What many people don't realize is the range of colors in which garnet
comes. There is the rich deep red that most people are familiar with; then there is the green of the tsavorite
garnet (which is being used as an accent gemstone more and more frequently because they make an excellent choice as an emerald
substitute) or there are yellow
, orange, pink
, purple and clear (white) colors of garnet. There are even color shift and change garnets. The color change greenish-blue to violet-red have the color of the much more expensive alexandrite.
