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.
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.
