Hessonite Garnet inventory is from Southern California (generally under 1 carat). These garnets were found years ago in a pegmatite that was being prepared for construction. We had some of the brighter stones faceted in Thailand. We initially thought these were Spessartine garnets, but after checking on our refractometer, we determined that they are actually Hessonite. Please be aware that most of these stones contain inclusions, but because of their locational rarity, we decided to have them cut and are offering them for sale. Prices depend on quality, and begin at $10 per carat, with most stones under one carat.
