Fanta Orange Spessartite Mandarin Garnet, Loliondo, Tanzania
Zoom

Stone : Fanta Orange Spessartite Mandarin Garnet
Item : #r152
Origin : Loliondo, Tanzania
Weight : 7.8, 8.1, 6.3, 5.7, 5.2, 4.8 carat
Clarity : Very Slightly Included

Comments : In my opinion, this is the most intensely orange gemstone in the game. This mandarin garnet has the highly desirable "fanta" orange colour. Gems cut in this material have to be seen to be believed as it truely is incredibly bright and sparkly. This material has characteristic inclusions common to this type of garnet, namely very small bubble like sparkles.

Please be aware that this material
is getting terribly expensive! Anything over 5 carats rough sees the price per carat go up dramatically. These garnets that I recently purchased have gone up in price by 125% compared to the same time last year when I purchased some rough! It is not cheap and the cut gems ARE going to be expensive. I wish I could say it wasn't the case but it is. If you can find cheap true "fanta" orange spessartite mandarin gems out there, grab them because they won't be cheap or available for long. I wouldn't be surprised if these "fanta" garnets go the way of paraiba tourmaline with prices rising dramatically.

Malaya Garnet, Umba Valley, Tanzania

Stone : Malaya Garnet
Item : #r142
Origin : Tanzania
Weight : 79.9 ct
Clarity : Eye Clean/Very Very Slightly Included

Comments : Another great big grape of top quality malaya garnet... stones of this size, colour and quality are very scarce. Shapewise, this piece is like a robin's egg or a grape. This material is dark but cuts a lovely deeply coloured wine red with some orangey highlights. It is beautiful garnet and the gems cut from this material are true nightstones performing very well under incandescent lights.

Umbalite Garnet, Tanzania
Zoom

Stone : Umbalite Garnet
Item : #r151
Origin : Umba Valley, Tanzania
Weight : 5 - 6.7 ct
Clarity : Eye Clean/Very Very Slightly Included

Comments : Umbalite garnet is perhaps the most sort after type of rhodolite garnet. Generally it is only found in smaller sizes and anything over ten carats rough starts getting very expensive. Its also not that easy to find. This material has the wonderful pink tones and is a shade lighter then other rhodolite. It cuts a very bright and sparkly gem and this material appears to be very clean and under close inspection I could not see any inclusions or silk.
