WHAT IS RHODOLITE GARNET:
Rhodolite is the name used to describe the lovely pinkish, purplish or purple-red garnet which is a mixture of Almandite and Pyrope.
Garnets as a group are relatively common in highly metamorphosed rocks and in some igneous formations.
They form under the high temperatures and/or pressures that those types of rocks must endure.
Garnets can be used by geologists as a gauge of how much temperature and pressure the rock has endured.
Garnets are greatly variable in colors and varieties, though, and many of these are both rare and beautiful, producing genuinely precious gemstones.
Some garnets are truly unique in the mineral kingdom and have much to offer as both gemstones and mineral specimens.
