This Black Garnet has a beautiful polish with stunning lustre and an excellent round brilliant cut.
Garnet comes in many different colours and is differentiated by categories within the Garnet classification. Black Garnet is of the Andradite category and is often called Melanite Garnet. It has the highest refractive index of all the garnets, giving it a black diamond like lustre.
Energetically Black Garnet is said to have a strong grounding energy.
Deposits have been found in Italy, Russia and the Ukraine amongst other areas.
Due to its vitreous lustre it is a beautiful stone that mimics black diamond. It would look lovely on its own set in white, yellow or rose gold, or surrounded with white diamonds for a classic black tie style statement piece. I would love to see this stone come to life in a ring with an unusual halo design or to see it feature as a centre piece in an incredible high neck chocker style delicate diamodn cut chain necklace with a cascading white diamond and diamond cut chain trail.
