Ah, Garnet. That deep red gemstone that I'm sure some people out there know and love. Like any gemstone worth talking about, it's pretty to look at and reflects and refracts light in interesting ways when cut. And like a gemstone that isn't too fragile to actually use in jewelry, garnets range from 6.5 to 7.5. Wait, garnets. Plural. You know what that means, right?
That means there's a whole Garnet family out there just waiting to be explored. For our exploration today, we'll be looking at three members of the Garnet family.
But before any of that silliness, let's cover Garnets in general. For all you science nerds out there, here's a model of Garnet's chemical structure.
