As we watch many important mineral deposits play out over time, we hear reports of another, just-as-exciting find. Today, that exciting discovery of phenomenal garnet comes from the east African country of Kenya. We have chosen the name Mpito, the Swahili word for "transition", which is a perfect descriptor for these gems which have a strong, distinctive color change. This amazing geological region has yielded some of the most incredible gem varieties ever unearthed and Jewelry Television's Mpito Garnet is no exception! The garnet family of gems is known for its fabulously wide ranging palette of vibrant, natural colors, yet there are very few that possess color changing properties. It is those that are considered among the rarest and most desirable of all gems. Displaying a very noticeable color change, Mpito Garnet goes from a sensational teal in daylight to an electrifying purplish red in incandescent lighting. And don't be surprised to see a few rutile needles in your gem, serving as a distinguishing marker for this rich geological region. Mpito Garnet is a magical gem that demands your attention and we invite you to discover the wonder that is Mpito Garnet today, available exclusively at Jewelry Television and jtv.com.
