The Stone of Truth

Almandine is a deep red, transparent variety of the mineral species garnet. Almandine crystals typically display a well-formed, pyramidal shape and range in size from less than a millimeter to several centimeters. The almandine crystal is named after the Alabanda district in Asia Minor (present-day Turkey), where it was first found. These crystals are now found in many parts of the world, including Africa, Australia, and North and South America. Almandine crystals are often used in jewelry and as decorative accents in vases and other objects. When cut and polished, almandine crystals have a vitreous luster and are durable, making them ideal for use in various applications.
