    Malaia Garnet (Malaya Garnet) – Natural, Faceted, Red

    The name malaya or malaia comes from the Swahili word for "outcast," because the first buyers who saw these garnets in the 1960s rejected them in favor of rhodolites. These pyrope-spessartine blends can range from red to orangish or yellowish pink. They can sell for $20 to a little over $200 per carat. Faceted malaya garnets. © All That Glitters.
