Gem: Umbalite Garnet Weight: 5.25 cts Size: 13.09 x 9.26 mm Color: Deep Red/Orange Clarity: VVS Cut: Custom Pear Locality: Umba River Valley, Tanzania Treatment: None
Umbalite is a chemical hybrid of Almandine, Pyrope and Spessartine Garnets. This attractive Garnet variety is named after the location where it was first found; which is the Umba River Valley in Tanzania. This gem exhibits a beautiful deep red/orange color that is rich and regal. The clarity is exceptional, absolutely water clear. The stone glitters stunningly in the hand and out in the sun it gleams like a perfect Ruby. The custom cut pear shape is an excellent candidate for jewelry, particularly a drop pendant. This stone was designed and faceted by Brett Kosnar of Kosnar Gem Co. during June 2016. Enjoy!
