Garnets are not constrained to one colour alone, in fact, they come in nearly every colour. This garnet is nearly colourless, showing some light green-yellow in certain lighting.
This Garnet was cut with an apex crown in a highly unusual design, 'Maelstrom Authority', created by Arya Akhavan. With's already high dispersion, it nearly looks like a diamond in direct sunlight. Beautiful and just as versatile, this design can be set into any standard round-prong setting.
You won't find colorless Grossular Garnets readily available in jewelry stores and this one has quickly become one of our favorites.
