Also known as pink garnet, rhodolite is among the three types of garnet, the other two being the red pyrope and the violet almandine. Rhodolites are the lightest of the garnet and its color can vary from rose, to purple red, to bright raspberry. Rhodolite’s name comes from the Greek word “rhodon” which means rose-colored, an ode to to its blushing hue. These gemstones hardly require treatment, they have fantastic color on their own. The only help they need is the right cut to bring out their brilliance.
Discovered in Tanazania in the late 1960’s, Tanzanite is a rare and very valuable gemstone that sometimes even rivals the sapphire. Its color can run from blue to violet, depending on its cut. This is because tanzanite is a pleochroic, meaning it presents different colors at different viewing angles. A skillful jeweller is needed to achieve one’s desired color from the tanzanite.
