Introducing Mali Garnets to Joehenleyrough.com! Sourced in Sandere, Mali, this rare form of garnets was first discovered in 1994 - it continues to be the only known source in the world. Amongst the more rare varieties of garnets, they are a blend of grossular and andradite. Mali garnets cut brilliant gemstones with their high refractive index (1.72 - 1.748) and dispersion. They range in bright warm hues of green, orange, yellow, gold, and brown. We highly recommend adding them to your garnet collection.
