Andradite is a rare mineral in the garnet family. Yellow andradite garnets are called topazolites, black ones are called melanite, and green ones are called demantoids (because their very high dispersion makes faceted stones look like diamonds).
This 100% natural andradite garnet is from Mozambique.
