Suite of Three Hydrogrossular Garnets--"Transvaal Jade"
South Africa
This rare form of garnet is often confused with jade when seen only in its green form—hence it has been frequently called "Transvaal Jade", due to its origin in South Africa. Very rarely does one see the red variety of this mineral, much less the two colors juxtaposed. Perfectly matched this pair of translucent reddish drop-shaped cabochons, graduate from strawberry red at the bottom to rich grass green at the top and would be suitable for mounting as earrings, weighing approximately 13.20 carats and 12.70 carats respectively. Total weight approximately 25.90 carats. Measuring 43.54 x 9.53 x 3.54mm; together with an elongated oval cabochon, weighing approximately 25.42 carats and measuring 41.93 x 12.97 x 4.57mm
