1.33 ct. Bi-Color Grossular

Color:  Colorless / Medium Light Green Clarity:  Slightly Included
Origin:  Tanzania Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None  Measurements:  7.4 x 4.8 mm

From a fascinating new (and extremely limited) find of strongly zoned Grossulars from Tanzania.  Garnet of any variety is extremely uncommon when color zoned - it just almost never occurs.  These are being examined and will be featured in an upcoming article in the Journal of Gemmology.  So far, we have heard of no more than a dozen faceted stones, many of those considerably smaller than this stone.  This one is actually even more impressive in person - the photo has blended the colors a bit, but the green is quite distinctly separated from the completely colorless section.
