Red Garnet Gemstones Garnet gemstones most commonly occur with reddish color, which explains their historical name. The name "garnet" comes from the Medieval Latin word, 'granatum', which is an adjective meaning "dark-red". It is thought that 'granatum' was derived from the word 'pomegranate', due to the color of pomegranate seed coats, as well as the overall shape of pomegranate seeds. Another theory is that the word may have come from the Medieval Latin word 'granum', which refers to 'red dye'. Almandine and pyrope garnets are the best-known red garnet gems. Many garnet gems are only slightly reddish, while others can occur with very pure red color. Rhodolite garnet is a purplish-red color, while hessonite garnet is red-orange or vice versa.
