Spessartite is somewhat rare. As with the other garnets, it always occurs in a blend with other species. Gems with the highest spessartite content are a light orange. Those with an almandine content are reddish, to red brown in hue.
The most valuable spessarties are a bright, orangish red. These come from Ramona, California, and Amelia, Virginia, Madagascar.
Spessartine is fairly rare as a gem garnet, and one of the most beautiful. Large stones are very rare, and usually quite dark. The finest color is an orangy red, as exemplified by the material from Ramona, California, and Amelia, Virginia. A red-brown tint indicates a higher content of almandine, accompanied by higher refractive index; pale orange colors are closer to pure spessartine. Spessartine as a component of almandine tends to add a lively reddish tinge of color.
