Hessonite garnet is a gem-quality variety of grossular (grossularite) garnet, the calcium-aluminum silicate member of the garnet family. Most grossularite is green, but hessonite is well-known for honey-yellow to brownish-red hues. Hessonite garnet can also occur in other colors such as green, pink and clear, but it is most notable for its cinnamon-like colors. It is this reason hessonite garnet is nicknamed the cinnamon stone. When viewed under magnification, hessonite garnet has various areas of lesser transparency, helping to distinguish the stone from similarly colored gems such as citrine and topaz.
Hessonite is also more easily distinguished due to its manganese content and lower specific gravity compared to other garnet varieties. Garnet minerals such as hessonite garnet are found throughout the world. Garnet found near the Earth's surface typically results when a sedimentary stone of high aluminum content undergoes substantial heat and pressure, causing it to split in irregular plates. Varieties of garnet can also be found in igneous and metaphoric rocks. The best-known hessonite garnet deposits are in Sri Lanka, but the gemstone can also be found in Brazil, India, Canada, Madagascar, Tanzania and the United States.
