Spessartite Garnet Sources

Spessartite Garnets can be found in various locations around the world. Notable sources include:
United States: California, especially Ramona, is known for producing fine, orange gems. Other U.S. sources include Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Amelia Court House, Virginia.

Spessartite Garnet Properties

Spessartite Garnets often occur in solid-state series or mixtures with other garnet species like almandine and pyrope. The closer a Spessartite Garnet is to pure spessartite, the lighter its orange color. Those with reddish to red-brown hues will contain a higher almandine content and exhibit a higher refractive index.
