About Rhodolite Garnet Gemstone
Rhodolite is a rose-pink to red variety of Pyrope, which is a species in the Garnet Group. The name Rhodolite originally referred only to a variety of Pyrope Garnet but these days the name is used to describe just about any pink to red Garnet in the Almandine-Pyrope series. Chemically, Rhodolite can be pure Pyrope but may also be a mixture of about 70% Pyrope and 30% Almandine. Rhodolite gems vary in color from a rose-pink to purple-pink or purple-red and also raspberry-red. Many common red Garnets tend to be a very deep red with a brownish tint but Rhodolite is lighter and brighter because of its excellent clarity and relatively high refractive index (RI). One source of Rhodolite gems is the renowned Umba River Valley in Tanzania. Rhodolite gems from this area are often called Umbalite. A purplish variety of Rhodolite called €œGrape Garnet€ has been found in Brazil.
