Our pink and purple garnets belong to the Rhodolite species. Similar to other garnets, rhodolite is not a pure, singular variety. Instead being a mix between pyrope and almandine species. Its colour can vary from almost violet, through vivid purple to lighter pink hues.
The name originates from Latin “rhodon”, meaning rose. These stones are durable enough for everyday use, usually clean and come in attractive warm colours. Those features, along with good hardness at 7-7.5 on Mohs scale, make this gem an attractive choice for jewellers. Rhodolite garnets are found in most of traditional gem mining regions including Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and many others. There is a variety of Rhodolite that shows a colour change from bluish green in daylight to purple red in incandescent light.
