Hessonite Garnet Hessonite is an orange-brown variety of garnet popular with the Greeks and Romans for jewelry. It was also believed that hessonite illuminated the night, therefore preventing evil from harming the wearer. Garnet is also the January birthstone, and derived its name from the Latin word "granatus", meaning "like a grain". In Madagascar, hessonite is often referred to as "cinnamon stone". The color is from traces of manganese and iron.

My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
