FOR AN EXCLUSIVE LOTUS GARNET SHOWING
AT OUR 101ST & MEMORIAL LOCATION
Typically reserved for collection pieces, this unique and rare gem is available to you over these three days.
Unearthed in the Mahenge region of north Tanzania,
the lotus garnet was only recently discovered in late 2015.
Found in alluvial mines, the amount of rough is unknown, and each production is small and has a variation in color with every pocket produced.
Every guest who visits the collection
at our 101st/Memorial location
between Thursday and Saturday
WILL BE ENTERED TO WIN
a 1.40cttw lotus garnet of their very own.
Exceptional Beauty and Color:
The unique pinkish orange to orangey pink color of lotus garnet makes it an exceptional substitute to padparascha sapphire, morganite, and imperial topaz. The lotus garnet is a member of three garnet families, pyrope, spessartine, and almandine, and is usually found in conjunction with rhodolite garnet and spinel.
Lotus garnets are best viewed in sunlight and have a slight red fluorescence that can give the appearance of color change.
We look forward to sharing this exceptional find with you!
