Hessonite Garnet

Hessonite is a major player in the wide and varied garnet family and it is the most historically important and spiritually powerful with its links to Vedic astrology where it is referred to as one of the nine perfect gemstones.

Hessonite Garnet Colors

Hessonite Garnet’s nickname is the 'Cinnamon Stone' so you can guess the colors that are usually found in this gemstone - a range from honey-yellow to orange-brown and brown-red.

The color is caused by the presence of manganese during formation and the most desirable color is a bright golden orange although the lighter stones will show off more of a garnet's brilliance.

See our detailed article on Gemstone Colors here

Hessonite Garnet Species

There are at least 20 species of garnet but only 5 that are really of any interest to the world of gemstones - almandine, pyrope, spessartite, grossular and andradite.

Hessonite Garnet is a type of grossular although like most garnets they are rarely pure in crystal and chemical structure and are composed of a number of different minerals.

Even within the grossular garnet species there are a wide variety of gemstones including:

  • Tsavorite - a valuable bright green version
  • Mali - a grossular/andradite blend creating a golden yellow to caramel brown gemstone
  • Merelani Mint - in refreshing pastel hues

Hessonite Garnet Price

The price of a Hessonite Garnet is above all determined by its color - only then do we consider the clarity, cut and carat weight.

The ideal color for a Hessonite Garnet is a bright golden orange with a few honey tones thrown in for good measure. It is very rare to find a Hessonite without any internal flaws and in fact they can add to their charm with distinguishing curves and waves of alternating translucency.

Carat Weight

Although Hessonite Garnets can be found in quite large carat weights they do get more and more expensive per carat as the size increases - assuming the color, clarity and cut remain similar in quality.

For such a fine gemstone they still represent good value.

A Hessonite Garnet of around 1 carat in weight will begin at about $10 per carat for an average stone but can rise to $50 per carat for a top quality gemstone.

However, a Hessonite Garnet of above 2 carats with great color and good clarity could easily reach $100 per carat.

Treatments

Hessonite Garnets, like most other garnets, are not treated in any way to enhance their appearance other than the usual cutting and polishing.

Any treatments are clearly and fully disclosed on our product pages.

Where is Hessonite Garnet found?

The best-known sources of Hessonite Garnet are Sri Lanka, Brazil, India, Canada, Madagascar, Myanmar (Burma), Tanzania and the US.

What jewelry is Hessonite Garnet suitable for?

I was in the market for a replacement gemstone for a solitaire ring that I recently purchased. I was delighted to locate GemSelect as an option for the replacement gem. They have an impressive selection of gemstones! I ordered a citrine trillion cut gemstone. The pictures of the gemstones appear accurate in terms of color and size . The prices are appropriate for the quality of stones I've received. I will continue to shop with GemSelect and will recommend them to anyone in the market for gemstones.

I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.

I’ve purchased from GemSelect a few times in the past year. I would not shop anywhere else. The photos make all the difference…I can select the exact color I want. I have over 100 pieces, and I’ve never been less than thrilled with each gemstone.

My significant other told me about gem select, he knows I have a small business in making jewelry. I often use these and experiment with new designs and seeing the wide variety of options really is amazing. I love all of the items I see, but sometimes I want more than one of the selection and there is only one of that type. I understand it takes work to put these together so I am not complaining. I would recommend this sort of thing to my friends that might be interested in making jewelry or to others that are on forums say on reddit or other sites.
