What's Special about these garnets is the wonderful color-an intense purple with red flashes that we call Royal Purple. The Mozambique material in particular has a bright open color with wonderful brilliance. If this wasn't enough, these garnets also display a fascinating color change, from grape under daylight to cranberry with magenta flashes under incandescent lighting.
The GIA lab in Bangkok did some analysis of the Mozambique purple garnets and published their findings in the Fall 2016 edition of Gems & Gemology, The material they tested came from a mine in central Mozambique in Manica province close to the Zimbabwe border.
