This stone is a show-stopper! It's brilliant teal color radiates in low light, and blinds in daylight. (Melanie can't stop picking it up.) This is one of the materials we brought back from Thailand, and looking at it, I can't believe it took us so long to grab some up! The real challenge is trying to capture its glowing beauty on camera.
One thing that can really set YAG apart from others is its bright, bold, and beautiful colors! But it can come in every color of the rainbow as well as monochromatic black, grey, and colorless. YAG (Yttrium Aluminium Garnet) is a synthetic crystalline material of the garnet group. It began its story in the 1960's, being used for optics and laser technology. Due to it's hardness and brilliance, it soon found it's way into jewelry as a diamond simulant. With its hardness of 8.5, it makes an excellent choice for everyday rings.
