Almandite Star Garnet Gem Rough

Almandite (also known as almandine) is a variety of garnet.

There are many named garnet varieties. The six main garnet varieties are based on ideal end-member chemical compositions. Almandite is the iron (Fe3) rich garnet end-member variety. Some of our almandite garnet gem rough is suitable for making faceted gems, and some for cabochons. Many of our cab-grade alalmandite garnet rough pieces have chatoyancy due to microscopic inclusions of pyroxene or amphibole, yielding a four-ray star when fashioned into a cabochon gem.

We also have many other types of natural lapidary rough available!
