      Spessartine Garnet is a gorgeous stone belonging to the garnet group of minerals and is known as “Garnet of the Sun”. The Spessartine variety is one of the aluminum containing members of the Garnet group with a chemical composition of Mn3Al2(SiO4)3. Spessartine Garnet was named in 1832 by François Sulpice Beudant after its type locality in the Spessart Mountains, Germany.

      Humans have been enchanted with Garnets for more than 5,000 years, dating back to the Bronze Age. Garnets are a large group of rock-forming silicate minerals. They are found all over the world in metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks. Most Garnets form in volcanic environments when aluminum-rich sedimentary rocks like shale are subject to intense heat and pressure. The Garnet group consists of several different species including: Almandine, Andradite, Grossular, Pyrope, Spessartine and Uvarovite. 

      Garnet is the modern & traditional January birthstone and is the second anniversary stone. Garnet is derived from the Greek word “granatum” after its striking resemblance to the seeds in a pomegranate. Much of what has been recorded in history refers to red Garnets because they are the most common. Today, gem lovers have a beautiful color array to select from!
