The Brazilian Garnet
The term “garnet” comes from the Latin “malum granatum”, grain fruit, which designated the pomegranate. Indeed, the grains of this gleaming color flee strongly recall these gems.
A garnet jewelry industry has existed since Roussillon in the Middle Ages, using local minerals. It boomed in the 19th century, then declined in the 20th century, but still exists today.

LThe different varieties of Garnet come from different regions of the world: India, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
