A stunning little Garnet from the Merelani Hills of Tanzania.

Known commercially as Merelani Mint Garnet, it is a variety of Grossular Garnet coveted for its rich blue-green colour.

This superb example benefits from good clarity and transparency with barely visible inclusions and is well-cut, giving the lustrous gem a fiery appearance.

The fresh blue-green colour is well saturated through this sparkling gemstone which would make a superb centre-piece in a jewel as well as being a highly collectible gemstone. 

Under LW UV illumination the gem displays a weak orange-yellow fluorescence, characteristic of this appealing Garnet variety.
