Sessertite GarnetEnter the title of your question


Does a natural garnet ever display flouresence. I am trying to determine if a stone I purchased is natural Spessertite garnet, it just looks too good to be a natural stone and does glow a bit under UV light. Could it be a YAG?Enter the details of your question


Some natural grossular garnets can show fluorescence.


Thank you for your reply, and now I will have to dig deeper. So many variables.


Check SG, could be synthetic orange sapphire, a mistake I once made!


Thank you for responding. I will check that possibility out. SAO
