Description:The color in this stone is really attractive It's somewhere between a light colored Tsavorite and a Demantoid. The stone is a good green, and somewhat reminds me of the color seen in the Copper-bearing Tourmalines from Mozambique. Almost all Garnets contain some kind of a chromaphore that causes the different color (i.e., iron, chromium, manganese etc) but you rarely see Garnets that carry a trace of Vanadium. Honestly, I have only seen a few of these stones over the years, and they're always small, but the color is really pleasing. This stone is virtually eye clean with an "Oval" cut. A cool stone for collectors.
