 I already bid on it! But, there’s still time to outbid me!

Spessartine Garnet ranges from orange to red-brown and is found in various locales, such as Myanmar, Brazil, China, Kenya, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the U.S. It has a Mohs’ hardness of 6 1/2 to 7 1/2.  Spessartine, or spessartite, garnet makes beautiful jewelry!

Speaking of beautiful jewelry, here are a few more lovely examples of items for sale on OLA.com!
