About Malaya Garnet
Malaya garnet or Malaia garnet is a mixture of pyrope and spessartite garnet.
Malaya Garnet comes in a variety of colors which ranges from light to dark pinkish orange, reddish orange, or yellowish orange.
Malaya Garnet is found in east Africa, in the Umba Valley of Tanzania and Kenya.
It was at first believed to be a type of spessartite garnet and sometimes rhodolite garnet. Later it was given its own name since it was disctinct from the other types.
Lovely and unusual variety of stones. U.S. companies stick to the same old "regulars". Boring!
GemSelect also does a fine job of rating the stones. Gemstones are meant to dazzle and a great way to add flash and fun for those of us who like color. Will be happy to share photos of the stones when they are set.
