Uvarovite Garnet loose sale price & Uvarovite Garnet Gemstone Information
Uvarovite Uvarovite is named after Count S. S. Uvarov, (1765-1855), president of the St. PetersburgAcademy and mineral collector.
This is the rarest of the garnet family. Colored by chromium, it is always a dark, rich green. The crystals are small and most people have only seen examples of druzy on matrix.
The crystals are usually opaque. Onlysmall corners of larger crystals have the transparency for faceting. Anything over one carat is exceptionally rare for a faceted uvarovite. Collectors are grateful to have a faceted uvarovite of any size. They are so rare; there simply are not enough to go around.
