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.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
