Md Yellowish Green/Pink, 2.25 cts oval cut measuring 7.5x6.5x6.0 mm, v lt incl, from Madagascar. Another fine alexandrite that exhibits a strong color change. This gem displays a little more yellow in daylight with a change to a strong pink under incandescent light.

Md Dk Yellowish Green/Reddish Pink, 1.69 cts cushion cut measuring 6.5x5.4x5.0 mm, v lt incl, from Madagascar. A very fine gem with a strong color change.

|18773 Pyrospessartite Garnet C.C.,
Md Dk Greenish Brown/Red, 5.15 cts oval cut measuring 11.0x8.0x6.0 mm, v lt incl, from Madagascar. This is a very rare size for a color change garnet that displays such a strong color change.

|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 (On Reserve)
|2196 Pyrospessartite Garnet C.C.,
Md Brownish Green/Orangish Red, 3.04 cts freeform oval cut measuring 10.4x8.2x3.6 mm, lt incl, from Sri Lanka. This color change garnet was mined in Sri Lanka long before the discoveries of other color change garnet deposits in Kenya, Tanzania, and Madagascar. The color change is quite strong in a gem that was native cut to recover as much weight as possible.
Priced at $400/carat or $1,216.00/gem
|18214 Pyrospessartite Garnet C.C.,
Md Dk Blue/Magenta, 1.03 cts oval cut measuring 6.5x5.0x3.5 mm, mod incl, from Tanzania. A blue to magenta color change garnet. Blue is a very rare color for garnets and have only been found in pyrospessartites during the past 20 years.
Priced at $400/carat or $412.00/gem
