At 4.85 carats, this oval Masasi Blue Garnet™ is an important collectible gemstone. Until a few short years ago, the world had never seen any blue garnets; the gemstone reference books said they did not exist! Then magic happened when this new alluvial source was discovered in southern Tanzania. We were asked to participate in the acquisition of some of this rough. After a short discussion, we decided to invest heavily and buy as much as we could! And effectively, we cornered a good portion of this market for a time, while the rough was being found. Like natural alexandrite, this garnet has a very similar color change and is untreated. But our experts believe it is even rarer; therefore very desirable for any collection. Now, the particular deposit this stone was mined from is no longer producing and market supplies of these phenomenal gems are extremely limited. The supply is sporadic to virtually none. This bodes well for the smart collector now and in the future.

Masasi Blue Garnet
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!
