Grossular or grossularite is a calcium-aluminum mineral species of the garnet gemstone group. The name grossular is derived from the botanical name for the gooseberry, grossularia, in reference to the green garnet of this composition that is found in Siberia.

The rarest of these is the blue garnet, discovered in the late 1990s in Bekily, Madagascar.

Our Listing Photographs
What you see IS what you get at Kidz Rocks! Besides using high quality Nikon lenses, we use 4500 color temperature 100 CRI lighting. 4500 temperature being the closest to natural light and CRI being Color Rendering Index or a light sources ability to faithfully render the colors.

While many stores do not disclose treatments done to certain types of minerals after they are mined, we disclose all treatments in our listing descriptions. If the product listing does not say it was treated then it is a 100% natural rock just as it came out of the ground. Treatments are not always something to shy away from as some do. Many treatments simply reproduce the exact same process that mother nature uses and/or cleans the specimen so it may be enjoyed.
