DescriptionRARE STONE: DEMANTOID GARNET - ROUGH & CUT SET
Tetezambato (Antetezambato), Ambanja District, Diana (Northern) Region, Antsiranana Province, Madagascar
Demantoid is a variety of Andradite Garnet with an extremely high refractive index and dispersion, just like it's namesake: Diamond. Hence, Demantoid Garnets display an unbelievable level of "fire" as demonstrated in this unusual rough and cut set from the new Madagascar discovery. The gem crystal is light green, euhedral, almost complete and has good transparency. With characteristic habit and color, this gem crystal measures 9.4 x 9.0 x 9.2 mm. The companion emerald-cut gemstone is a light olive green, bright & lively, has good dispersion, is quite clean with minor inclusions, and measures 9 x 5 mm. Both in fine condition.
