Color Change Gems  
18170 Pyrospessartite Garnet C.C.,
Dk Blue/Intense Magenta, 1.41 cts cushion cut measuring 6.4x4.5x4.1 mm, lt incl, from Tanzania. We offered this gem awhile back and sold it to a customer in California who could not see the color change because lighting regulations no longer allow incandescent lighting. We still feel it displays one of the strongest color changes we have seen in a garnet and the blue daylight color is very unusual for a garnet. Priced at $800/carat or $1,128.00/gem
