Mozambique Garnet is a deep red to cherry-red mineral that comes from the Niassa province of Mozambique. It is a mixture of almandine garnet and pyrope garnet, two varieties of garnet belonging to the silicate group. Mozambique garnet has a hardness of 7-7.5 on the Mohs scale, a density of 3.5-4.3 g/cm3 and a cubic crystal structure. It is used as a gemstone for jewellery, with high transparency and a glassy lustre. It is cut into different shapes such as round, oval, trillion or octagon. Mozambique garnet has a classic beauty, reminiscent of ancient garnets or 19th century Bohemian garnets.
