Garnet (pronounced GAR-nit) is derived from the Latin word "granatum" (meaning "pomegranate") as a result of its deep, glossy color that resembles the seeds of a pomegranate. This gemstone can vary from transparent to opaque purplish red to deep burgundy red and contains few inclusions. Due to availability of rough material, product may contain garnet varieties including almandite (almandine), pyrope or both. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
