WHAT IS ALMANDINE GARNET:
Almandine is almost invariably dark in color, and it forms dark red to reddish-brown Garnet gemstones. Almandine is the hardest form of Garnet, and a pure deep red is its most valuable color.
They form under the high temperatures and/or pressures that those types of rocks must endure.
These minerals share similar crystal structure, but they have a variable chemical composition.
The color of garnet is primarily controlled by its composition.
Garnet is a well-known mineral not only because it is so widespread, but mostly because of its deep red color and beautiful crystal faces which make it a semi-precious gemstone.
Industrially garnet is mostly used as an abrasive because of its hardness and irregular fracture.
It is also used in water purification filters.
