The Origin of Hessonite
Although all members of the garnet family are green, Hessonite is distinctive with its honey-yellow to brownish-red play of colours. However, this semi-precious gemstone is also available in hues of green, pink and even some transparent. The origin of garnet minerals can be traced to near the Earth’s surface, where a sedimentary stone with high aluminium content is subjected to high amounts of heat and pressure, causing the mineral to split into irregular plates. These irregular plates can then be shaped into gorgeous Hessonite garnet stones.
