Regular price $3.00 Sale

Garnets have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives. These different species of these sought-after gems possess similar physical properties and crystal forms, but differ in chemical composition — which can affect their color.

The tumbled stones in this listing are Grossular Garnets — otherwise known as green Garnet.

The name grossular comes from the botanical name for the gooseberry, grossularia, in reference to the green garnet of this composition that comes from Siberia.
