Garnet is a very old gemstone, used in ancient Egyptian pharaohs' necklaces. Garnets have a very wide variety of colors. This is due to the different chromiferous elements (iron, manganese, magnesium, chromium ...) that its different varieties contain. Garnet can be in colors ranging from purple to chocolate, through green, orange, yellow, pink, and red. In total, there are nearly forty garnets that are historically and commercially recognized.
