    Depending on type, garnet hardness ranges from 6.5 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale. Garnets have fair to good toughness, making them durable enough for all jewelry styles as long as they are treated with the proper care. Garnets should not be subjected to any hard blows or rough wear. Garnet jewelry is best cleaned with warm, sudsy water and a tightly woven microfiber or other soft cloth. The ultrasonic cleaner is usually safe except for stones that have fractures. Avoid steam cleaning. Take all your fine jewelry to a professional jeweler at least twice a year for a thorough cleaning and inspection.


    Almandine and Pyrope are the most widely used garnet gemstones. Though Almandine is the most common garnet, it is usually opaque and not fit for gemstone use. Pyrope is especially noted for its transparency and frequent lack of flaws or inclusions. A rose-red to violet variety of Pyrope (or intermediary between Almandine and Pyrope) is known as Rhodolite and is a very well represented in the gem trade. Spessartite is an orange to orange-red form of garnet, and has recently increased in popularity, with several new deposits of gem grade material having been recently exploited. Another valuable specimen of garnets are Malaya, occupying an intermediate position between Pyropes and Spessartine. These crystals differ pinkish-orange, reddish-orange or yellowish-orange color. Grossular, the most varicolored form of garnet, has the important gem variety of green Tsavorite, as well as orange-brown Hessonite and a yellow to yellow-green form. Andradite, the most lustrous of the garnets, has the rare green Demantoid variety, the yellow Topazolite variety. Color-changing Garnet is an interesting form of this gemstone that has a different color when viewed in natural and incandescent lighting. It can have several color combinations, especially brown or orange in daylight to a pink or light red in incandescent light.
