Mandarine Garnet Spessartite Pear Shape 8x6mm 1.43ct

Mandarin Spessartite Garnet is a rare form of orange garnet often referred to as Mandarin Garnet for its vivid orange color. These gems actually occur in a range of colors from yellowish orange to reddish orange and orange-red. The combination of vivid color and garnet's very high refractive index make spessartite garnet one of the most brilliant stones in the world of colored gems.

The pure orange, known as mandarin or fanta orange, is very rare and has been found in only a few deposits in Africa, notably in Nigeria. These top spessartites are sought after by gem collectors. Very little in the way of new material has been found recently.

The prices and value of spessartite garnet varies according to the size and quality of the gemstone. Color and clarity are the most important determinants of value. The vivid orange is the most valuable, especially clean stones in larger sizes. The reddish and orange and orange-red are also valuable in fine quality. Gems with a distinct brownish secondary hue, or heavily included stones, are less valuable.
