Mandarin Garnet

The mandarin garnet or also spessartite garnet rounds up the group of garnets. The outdated name spessartite comes from the first known site of the garnet species in the Spessartite area in Germany. Nowadays, the name mandarin garnet is common because the bright orange colour is reminiscent of a mandarin.

The orange garnets are mostly found in Brazil, Namibia, Mozambique or Kenya.
