Rich maroon, golden yellow, ruddy red, deep green, and warm oranges are all colors associated with Fall! Garnet is the perfect gemstone to pair with your Fall wardrobe because it comes in ALL of the Fall colors. We tend to think of Garnet as a brown-red, but it actually comes in a wide variety of yummy color.
Almandine & Pyrope: Almandine and Pyrope can mix forming a purplish red color we call Rhodolite Garnet. This has a beautiful red wine color!
Spessartine: Spessartine Garnet is found in a range of orange, yellow, and golden colors! Spessartine can also mix with Pyrope forming Malaya Garnet which is pink to pinkish orange.
Grossular: This Garnet species has the broadest range of colors. You may have heard of the vibrant green Tsavorite (the “t” is silent) Garnet which is named after the Tsavo National Park in Tanzania. Mint Garnet is soft green color while Hessonite Garnet is a warm orange, red, brown, or cinnamon color.
Andradite: Demantoid Garnet is the most-rare and well known species of Andradite Garnet. It is an intense green to yellow green color with a signature inclusion called a horse tail. A horse tail inclusion in only found in Demantoid Garnet and are described as wisps of long, golden fibers that radiate from a central point.
Color should ultimately be the deciding factor when purchasing or admiring a gemstone, and if you love Fall, just know that you have gemstone color options! If you are looking for a particular color of gemstone, look to Garnet because you may find something you haven’t seen anywhere else.
