uvarovite garnet

Uvarovite is the rarest variety of garnet and, due to the chromite it contains, is a brilliant emerald green in colour.
It was named after the Russian count and statesman Sergey Uvarov Semeonovich, a great lover and collector of minerals, by Germain Henri Hess, the man who discovered it.
The best quality crystals come from deposits in the Urals, Russia and Finland.
