Uvarovite Garnet

Uvarovite Garnet


      Uvarovite Garnet is one of the rarest varieties of Garnet and is colored by inclusions of Chromium (the same chemical element that gives Emerald its color). It's extremely rare with faceted gems hardly ever exceeding one carat in weight. Uvarovite Garnet specimens of any size are highly collectible.  It was discovered in 1832 by Germain Henri Hess who named it after Count Sergei Uvarov (1765–1855), a Russian statesman and mineral collector. Uvarovite Garnet has notable deposits in Finland, the USA, Russia, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Norway.

      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!
