The Magic of Pyrope Garnet

We are stunned by the mesmerizing beauty of the pyrope garnet. Often cut with immaculate symmetry, it is looked upon as “living fire,” perhaps because of the evocative beauty of its bold colors, which can range anywhere from glowing mauves and wine purples, to crimson and scarlet shades.

Pyrope is a Stone of Vitality

Pyrope garnet inspires us to dare to allow our inner beauty to sparkle and shine through. It is a dazzling stone of vitality, setting our inner charm aglow and on brilliant display for the world to see.

Are Pyrope Garnets Rare?

Though not as rare as other garnet varieties, like uvarovite and Fanta Spessartine Garnet, large pyrope garnet crystals can prove quite hard to find. The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is known to house large pyrope garnets as does the Green Vault in Dresden. The Green Vault is said to exhibit a pyrope garnet as large as a pigeon’s egg.
