About Mali Garnet
Mali Garnet, like rhodolite, is one of the hybrid garnets. Where rhodolite is a mixture of almandine and pyrope, mali is a mixture of grossular and andradite garnets.
The name mali derives from the West African country of Mali where this garnet was first discovered in 1994. Mali is still the only source for this rare garnet. Though Mali Garnet is predominantly grossular by composition, the presence of andradite is responsible for its superb dispersion or fire, reminiscent of the most famous andradite garnet, demantoid.
Well it certainly looks good but since this is my first purchase I won't know until I receive my item I have purchased from other well known gem dealers and I am strictly an amateur . I just know what I want when I want it and I was delighted at finding the gem I was looking for and it is so beautiful in person I'm just thrilled!
