Rhodolite Garnet is a famous type of Pyrope Garnet that comes in a beautiful purple color. Its name originated from the two Greek terms, which means “rose stone.” It usually shows all the radiance and conflagration of the Garnets, with an attractive color varying from red-rose to light-violet. It is one of the more common gemstones and it can be very vibrant or sometimes dull. It is rare to find a pure purple stone as usually it is mixed with other types of Garnet. This causes the color to be pinkish purple or reddish purple.
