Mozambique is an exotic land far away on the eastern coast of Africa. Its vibrant and colorful landscape features glorious beaches, lush forests, amazing wildlife, unique vegetation, mysterious swamps and a myriad of incredible gemstones and minerals. Among its treasures is the beautiful Vermelho Garnet, which features a rich combination of both the Pyrope Garnet species as well as the Almandine Garnet species. The Pyrope portion gives the stone its regal red color, while the Almandine portion brings in warm spicy shades of cinnamon. This spicy gemstone originates from a region known as Zambezia and is called Vermelho Garnet, meaning "red" in Portuguese, one of the official languages of this exotic country.
