    Hessonite – Natural, Faceted, Orange, 2.66 ct

    Hessonite garnet, the "cinnamon stone," can show warm yellow-orange to reddish orange colors. Since these gems almost always have a brownish tint and many inclusions, they are less popular than other orange garnets. However, that also makes them more affordable, usually selling for around $20 to $150 per carat. Some hessonites have an attractive, hazy "whisky in water" effect due to their inclusions.
