Tanzanian color change garnet in recent decades, the east African country of Tanzania has yielded some of the most incredible gems ever unearthed. Originating from a geological formation known as the Mozambique Belt, one of Tanzania's mineral treasures is on display in the form of beautiful color changing garnet. While the garnet family of gems is treasured for its fabulously wide ranging palette of vibrant, natural colors, there are few that possess the special optical properties of color shift and color change. Shifting from varying shades of green in daylight to red in incandescent lighting, it is those stones that are especially prized among collectors. This Tanzanian garnet is sure to delight the most discriminating gem connoisseur with its pure, all-natural beauty and transitional color in a variety of warm and cool lighting. Don't miss this opportunity to include phenomenal garnet in your gem collection!

The term cat's eye, or chatoyancy, is used to describe a phenomenal optical property in gemstones, in this case andradite garnet. The effect, when present, appears as a bright, narrow slit similar to the pupils in the eyes of your favorite feline. This phenomenon is caused by parallel fibrous or needle-like inclusions that interfere with the passage of light throughout the crystal, scattering and reflecting light back to the viewer as a thin line. Andradite garnet is relatively unfamiliar to the general public, but this species includes demantoid, melanite, topazolite and schorlomite. Garnets that feature a cat's eye are a rare occurrence and should be treasured.
