Hessonite Garnet

Also known as “cinnamon stone” this garnet belongs to the grossular garnet group species which also includes Tsavorite. Most grossular garnets are green, but Hessonite occurs in warm autumn tones of honey yellow to whiskey amber and burnt orange. Primary deposits are in Sri Lanka, but Hessonites are also mined in Brazil, Madagascar and India. Garnet is designated as the birthstone for January and the 2nd wedding anniversary.
