Blue Color Change Garnet

When it comes to gems that demonstrate the phenomenon known as color change, the list is extremely short and includes alexandrite, sapphire, spinel, Zultanite(TM), tourmaline, fluorite and garnet. Slightly rarer than alexandrite, color change garnet's first mention was in the early 1970s but was only noted then as a curiosity by a few gemologists and gem collectors. It was the discovery of color change garnet in Madagascar in the 1990s that made the gem world take notice. More like fine alexandrite than garnet, the Madagascan gems demonstrate strong color change, often more intense than seen in color change stones from other regions. The most dramatic color changes in Madagascan garnet are typically due to significant amounts of vanadium although chromium is present in some instances. Interestingly, it is alexandrite's chromium content that is responsible for its color change. Never easy for our buyers to locate, we invite you to discover the phenomenal beauty of Madagascan color change garnet today, a true wonder of nature!

Review This Product
very disappointedI've been holding off on getting my second blue garnet. My first was a .35 massasI blue...it was small but beautiful. So I thought I'd go for a larger one this time. Not sure if I got a blue garnet or an amethyst. There is no color change its just purple. Going to return it November 11, 2014
