About Garnet:

While it might be common belief that all garnet is red, this is nothing more than a misconception.  A wide variety of garnet species exist with stones coming in every color, including stones that visibly change color under different lighting conditions.  Some species, like the traditional brownish-red "almandine" (which used to be referred to as "almandite), are more common.  Others, like the brilliant green "tsavorite" and "demantoid" varieties, are far more rare, commanding higher prices in the trade.

Because the term "garnet" does not refer to one single species of stone, care instructions vary.  Green demantoid garnet requires the most care, sitting at 6.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness.  Red almandite and pyrope, orange spessartite, and green tsavorite are known to be harder varieties, ranking a durable 7.5 on the hardness scale.  While other varieties fall somewhere in between, most are durable enough to wear without any special care or mind.  Garnet jewelry can safely be cleaned in chemical jewelry cleaner unless otherwise noted on the label.
