Product Description

Masasi Blue Color Change Garnet Minimum .75ct, 7x5mm 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!

Review This Product
Still DecidingI bought 2 stones. One is a beautiful teal/blue green color in daylight and has minimal "color change" to a darker color which is hard to describe. Not distinctly blue or black just dark. It does have pretty flashes of pink and light yellow in incandescent light. Under the right angle I am able to see more pink tones. Overall a pretty stone even with minimal to none existent true "color change." I think JTV needs to give the viewers a more realistic description of the color change of each stone to assist viewers in making a purchase they'll be happy with. Will have to wait and see if value is there. The other stone will be going back. August 01, 2012

THIS IS A DISAPPOINTMENT8-4-2011 I was so anxious to receive these gem stones (I ordered 2), but they turned out to be a real disappointment. There is absolutely no color change in both of them. No wonder there is no indication of what kind of color change (i.e., strong, moderate) on the description of the stone. The stone size was big enough to make stud earrings. I would have kept them if there was a slight color change but there is absolutely none which makes them not worth the price I paid for them. Sadly, these stones will be going back. I'll try my luck on another one. August 01, 2012

Purchased as a gift: No, it is not a gift.

NOT as discribedThe stone I received may be a garnet (didn't test it) but isn't the one I thought I was buying. It is not blue in daylight, it is green. It does not change to purple / red, it sort of becomes teal. It is a pretty green and eyeclean but when louped it is included and cracked. I will not be keeping this. August 01, 2012

Purchased as a gift: No, it is not a gift.
