Special Features

Colour Change Garnets are very unusual. Being a singly refractive gemstone it is a bit of a freak of nature that it has the ability to effect a colour change at all. Good quality colour change garnets displaying a strong colour change are rare and beautiful. The change comes when putting the stone under 2 different types of light - in white light (daylight) the garnet looks blue/green and in incandescent light (yellow light bulbs at night) it changes colour to pink-red. This particular piece displays an excellent colour change, is very well cut and has top clarity. It is from the Umba Valley in Tanzania and shows a wonderful change from blue/green to a stunning red. It is over 3 carats which makes it a very rare gemstone - even 1 carat good colour change garnets are very hard to find. This 3.30 carat, clean piece displays a top colour change - A superb piece.

Below is an article by a well known American gemologist called Richard Wise, expounding on the different aspects of this great gem type:Richard Wise Article.
