When people think of garnets, they often think of a stone with a deep-red hue. In fact, the name garnet comes from a Latin word that means “dark red.” Although the deep, rich, red garnets are often the most valuable, garnets come in as many shapes and sizes as they do colors! There are striking garnets in hues of yellows, oranges, and greens. Garnets form from a wide variety of minerals, which allow for a wide variety of colors, depending on the mineral composition of the specific gemstone.
