Grossular Garnet Crystals
Nice specimen pieces of grossular Garnet, showing off good crystal form. Grossular garnet is sometimes known as Gooseberry Garnet or grossularite, and can be clear, white, yellow, brown, red, or green.
Grossular Garnets are sometimes referred to as Grossularite. A green form from Kenya and Tanzania is known as Tsavorite, and is prized as a gemstone.
Our current stock includes:
- Packets of 50 grams of mixed size pieces from Namibia. There is usually some white Calcite matrix with some of these pieces, they are typically 5-15MM and a fifty gram packet contains roughly 20-30 pieces. They show off good crystal form, mostly complete with some fragmented pieces too. Perfect for teaching, resale, reenactment displays, or anything else where a lower priced Garnet might be a good option - public handling, etc! These are highly included or internally fractured and are not a gem grade; they are translucent to opaque and a very dark colour.
- Various sized pieces from Namibia with very good crystalline form, ideal for anyone who'd like a single decent quality specimen. Sold singly. These are highly included or internally fractured and are not a gem grade; they are translucent to opaque and a very dark colour.
- Various specimen pieces from Namibia on a white Calcite matrix, nice as small thumbnail specimens. Some pieces of matrix may have more than one garnet crystal on. Please note that the size refers to the specimen as a whole, not just the garnet crystal.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
