What is a color change garnet?
A “color change garnet” refers to a variety of garnet gemstone that exhibits a noticeable change in color under different lighting conditions. The most common type of color change garnet is green or bluish green in daylight or fluorescent light and changes to a purplish or reddish color in incandescent light.
This phenomenon is caused by the presence of different trace elements within the crystal structure of the garnet, which can interact with light in various ways. The most well-known and sought-after color change garnet is the variety known as “alexandrite-like garnet” because of its similarity to the famous alexandrite gemstone, which also displays a dramatic color change.
Color change garnets are valued for their uniqueness and the intriguing optical effect they exhibit. The shift in color adds to the gemstone’s overall appeal, making it a popular choice for jewelry, especially in pieces that can showcase the color change phenomenon.
