Product Details

Garnet Mineral - Pack of 2
by American Educational Products

A group of silicate minerals that can be found in almost any color, garnet has been in use since the Bronze Age as both an abrasive, and polished into a gemstone. There are a number of different species of garnet, all of which have similar physical properties and crystal forms, with the difference being in their chemical composition.

Blue is the most rare color of garnet, and shades of red are the most common. When transparent, they tend to be cut and polished into gemstones, while opaque varieties tend to be used as abrasives.

Each rock or mineral specimen measures approximately 1-2 inches in length along its longest side.
