Where Are Hessonite Garnets From?

There are many different kinds of garnets found around the globe. Hessonite garnets are found primarily in Sri Lanka and India, as well as in Brazil. It can also be found in California. It is a form of grossular (or grossularite) garnet, meaning that it is rich in calcium and aluminum.

The name hessonite comes from the Greek word hēssōn, meaning lesser. However, don’t let the origin of hessonite’s name give you the wrong idea; it refers to this particular gem’s hardness being relatively low when compared to the hardness of most other types of garnets. We guarantee that our hessonite garnet beads are always of superior quality!

What Makes Hessonite Garnets Special?

Garnets are truly incredible gems, as they range in color from reds and yellows to greens. Hessonite garnet comes in a beautiful range of hues from rich browns and deep reds to bright oranges and even pinkish yellows. Its warm coloration earned this gem its own nickname: cinnamon stone. Our hessonite garnet beads capture the radiance of this gemstone in all of the various tones that are unique to this member of the garnet family. Although it shares shades with other gems, such as topaz and zircon, one defining characteristic of hessonite garnet is that it often contains wavy patterns of higher or lower transparency, meaning that some spots on each gemstone may be easier to see through than others.
