Garnet Color Shift 12.48x9.76x6.68mm Oval 7.05ct
Tanzanian color shift garnet 7.05ct 12.48x9.76x6.68mm oval. The stone is Red Brown in daylight and orangy pink Red in incandescent light. This stone also displays dichromatism. The gemstone was mined in Tanzania and cut in India. The gemstone comes with a Stone Group Labs Gemstone Identification Report. The stone has been appraised by Craig Lynch G.G. for $7,500.00
As we first learned of a new alluvial find of color change garnets in Tanzania in 2011, we decided to buy as many as possible. We then partnered with a trusted supplier to buy as much available rough as possible as it was found on a daily basis. We advised our supplier to facet these rare gemstones cleanly and with very good proportions. It was one of JTV's homeruns in recent years. We knew the historical rarity of these exotic garnets but even we were surprised to learn this exciting new supply was virtually mined out in less than a year. Today, these color change garnets remain in high demand. Any gem over one carat is rare and more than five carats is super rare. This lovely weighs in at an impressive 7.05 carats, making it highly collectible for all the reasons listed above.

Though they all have the same crystal structure (cubic, like diamond and spinel), garnet is an entire group of minerals that vary in their chemical composition, resulting in a variety of gems featuring different colors and properties. Though some varieties of red garnet are common and found on nearly every continent on Earth, other garnets like orange spessartite, green demantoid and tsavorite, are much less abundant. There are more than 20 garnet species, but the five most important include pyrope and almandite (the combination of which creates rhodolite), spessartite, grossularite or grossularite (which includes hessonite and tsavorite), and andradite (which includes demantoid). Garnets of all species are the birthstone for January, so January babies aren't limited to the well-known red varieties.
