FORMATION:  These minerals are found throughout the world in metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks. Most garnet found near Earth’s surface forms when a sedimentary rock with high aluminium content, such as shale, is subjected to heat and pressure intense enough to produce schist or gneiss. Garnet is also found in the rocks of contact metamorphism, subsurface magma chambers, lava flows, deep-source volcanic eruptions, and the soils and sediments formed when garnet-bearing rocks are weathered and eroded.

BIRTHSTONE: Natural Mozambique Garnet is the traditional birthstone for January and the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage.

UNUSUAL PROPERTIES: Mozambique  Garnet  is  believed  to  be  the  ultimate  declaration  of  love.  These gemstones have a high refractive index, giving them an exceptional brilliance.
