Unearthed in the Mahenge region of north Tanzania, lotus garnet was recently discovered in late 2015. Found in alluvial mines, the amount of rough is unknown and each production is small and has a variation in color with every pocket produced. The gemstone is a rare form of an orange-pink garnet similar to the color of morganite or imperial topaz. Lotus garnet, when viewed in the sunlight, has a slight fluorescence which can give the gemstone the appearance of color change. Stop by today to take a look at this new gemstone.
