Product Description

Masasi Blue Color Change Garnet Average .25ct, 5x3mm Oval. Mined In Tanzania And Cut In India.

The exotic East African country of Tanzania has poured forth several gemstone riches in recent years, including Tanzanite, Umba River Rhodolite, Serengeti Spessartite and many more, but one of the most special and more recent discoveries is Masasi Blue Garnet. Yes, blue garnet. Extremely rare and relatively new to the world of gemstones, blue was the last holdout in the far ranging color span of garnet. But no more. Hailing from near the Masasi district of Tanzania's Mtwara region, Masai Blue Garnet represents some of the finest blue color change garnet ever unearthed! It is indeed a phenomenal gem of highest quality. With rich blue color in daylight, Masasi Blue Garnet quickly changes to a dramatic purplish red in incandescent lighting, making one feel as if something magical just appeared before their very eyes. One can never be sure how long these amazing gems will be around, so secure your Masasi Blue Garnet today, only on JTV and jtv.com!

Stunningingly beautiful color - BUT NOT BLUEThe stone, expectedly tiny, is lovely and I'm glad to have it - especially at what amounts to roughly a third off because I purchased it as part of a kit that included a lighted triplet loupe. However, in daylight, it is even less blue than the example shown in this photo. It is a lovely, dark green. I will say it has blue undertones, vs. yellow undertones - think a deeply saturated, but not overly dark, chrome diopside or fine tsavorite garnet with just a slightly more blue-ish hue. Or the dark green moissanite that JTV has sold. In incandescent light, it shows almost full color change to a purple color that shows some violet/red and even a touch of the green/blue. For the price, I won't complain, but I have quite a few stones that exhibit great color change; I would have rathered my little stone be a blue garnet. I've actually had better luck with the material from Madagascar showing blue with a color change to violet/red. But, BGV031 is still well-cut with a nice sparkle and weighs almost a tenth of a carat more than the .25ct average. I would think most of us collectors that don't have a large budget would still be happy to add this gem to our collection. April 11, 2014
