Hessonite

Hessonite

These range in color from honey-yellow to orange-brown to brown-red. They are often referred to as the “cinnamon-stone”  One of the distinguishing characteristics of hessonite is a “treacly” quality — when viewed under magnification one can see undulating, contorted areas of lesser transparency. This helps to distinguish Hessonite Garnets from other stones.
