Etched Floaters of Spessartine Garnet from Brazil GN53
Harmony, Creativity, Manifestation
The Spessartine Garnet from the Navegadora mine is a gemstone of exceptional beauty and rarity. Its remarkable cranberry-red color, reminiscent of a rich, juicy hue, radiates from the fine specimen, captivating the eye with its intensity and depth. This particular garnet boasts a three-dimensional shape, adding a dynamic visual appeal to its appearance.
What sets this Spessartine Garnet apart is its status as a perfect floater. This term denotes that the gemstone is completely crystallized all around, without any attachment point to a matrix. This characteristic enhances its rarity and value, as it represents a pristine and unobstructed display of the mineral's natural beauty.
The crystal is utterly gemmy, a term used to describe its transparent to translucent nature, which allows light to pass through and interact with the crystal lattice in a way that maximizes the stone's inherent luster.
The geological formation of this Spessartine Garnet has been a subject of debate and interest in the mineralogical community. Initially, there was a dispute regarding whether its unique structure was a result of etched or stepped growth. This debate was ultimately resolved through the publication of two papers in 2006 confirming that the gemstone underwent a natural etching process.
Spessartine Garnet, a January birthstone associated with Aquarius and Capricorn, boosts creativity and aids in stress relief, peace, and relationship enhancement. It also enhances sexuality by resonating with the Sacral Chakra and is believed to warn of danger by changing color.
