Green Garnet is an uncommon variety of Garnet that’s composed of aluminum and calcium, with possible traces of chromium and vanadium. When one of the latter two minerals are present, this mineral is usually referred to as “Tsavorite Garnet”. Within the 6 types of Garnets (Andradite, Grossular, Uvarovite, Pyrope, Almandite, Spessartite) only Grossular, Andradite, and Uvarovite can be seen as green. For most types, the color can range from a transparent light green to a dark green that can look almost black. The rarest variety of Green Garnet is the Demantoid Garnet, where finding a stone weighing more than 2 carats is extremely rare.
