What’s a Malaya Garnet?
Sometimes in Africa I see the same stone being offered by different people on different days. These are jokingly referred to as “prostitute stones” because , well, let’s just say they get around…

GIA classifies Malaya Garnet as a pyrope-spessartite species. And because pyrope is often their primary component , they’re often classified as a variety of pyrope. However, they can also have traces of grossular and andradite
