  • Clarification on what is referred to as Mandarin Garnet

    Per a highly regarded Gemologist who has been in the field for many years clarified that garnets stated as Mandarin Garnet is exclusively those that come from Namibia and no other Spessartite no matter how close the color and are a pure orange without any other hues like red. However, other reputable sources refer to the Nigerian Mandarin Orange Spessartite Garnet as Mandarin Garnet.

    But large rough lots are sold as Mandarin Garnet so the buyer has to state what they know based on the information they have. We prefer to state that they are Mandarin Spessartite Garnet or Mandarin Orange Spessartite Garnet in our listing descriptions. Some of the stones are a very striking orange and others can have a reddish hue. We may use Mandarin Spessartite Garnet in the title but explain in our listings and some of our stones may be from Namibia. We do not coin the phrase Mandarin Garnet for anything known that is not from Namibia. It is stated in GIA that Mandarin Garnet is the trade name for bright orange spessartine from Namibia and at other places trained gemologists can determine the difference. The use of Mandarin Garnet for all garnets not coming from Namibia is referring to an orange colored Spessartite Garnet.

    Because the lots purchased it was not known for sure if these garnets are from Namibia or Nigeria, we state both as that is the info supplied to us. Unfortunately these lots were mixed by the miners. It is next to impossible to find those stickly from Namibia.
