Garnet - Namibian Mandarin
An ultra rare Namibian Mandarin Orange garnet back from a collector. Many dealers have been incorrectly selling Nigerian orange garnets as Mandarins. Only the goods from Namibia are true Mandarins. The gemstone is a bright, vivid orange and the inclusions are hard to see because the stone is so saturated. Of course, these garnets are not enhanced. Production of this material ceased when the mine owner passed. These gems are what every orange diamond wished it looked like. An excellent gemstone to collect for a client on a budget or could also be mounted in jewelry. Note: We have not submitted this stone for grading. All information is NGC's opinion only but we guarantee the stone is from Namibia and is unenhanced.
