FIRE GARNET (PYROPE)
Fire garnet is a mesmerizing stone, described as 'living fire'. It can range in colour from blood red to deep crimson, including some shades of near black, scarlet, violet, purples and indigoes.
The mineral name for fire garnet is 'pyrope' which derives from the Greek for 'fire' and 'eye'; it is easy to see why!
The deep red hue of pyrope garnet means that it is often mistaken for ruby and is a superior stone to almandine garnet because it tends to have fewer flaws and inclusions.
