Fanchy Antique Square Cushion Cut Hessonite Grossular Garnet, Likely Tanzania, 4.20 cts

This is much nicer in person than most hessonites. The honey-like crystal structure doesn’t show much at normal viewing distances, so this one isn’t as sleepy looking as most hessonite garnets. It also has only a tiny hint of the brownish tint that these are known for and is far better than most in that regard.
