     Rhodolite (ROE-doe-lite) is the name used to describe the lovely pinkish, purplish or lavender Red Garnets which are a mixture of Pyrope and Almandite. This name was first used in the late 1800's to describe the new rhododendron shade of Garnets discovered in North Carolina. Rhodolite is usually a Red stone, ranging from light to dark purplish Red through reddish Purple. Raspberry Rhodolite (trade name) is a rich purplish Red with bright Lavender highlights.
    Prices are based on the color, size and clarity of the stone. Rhodolite Garnets are not as dark as the common Pyrope Garnets. Rhodolite is heat sensitive, the stone fuses easily before a jewelers torch, and abrupt temperature changes could cause fracturing. Chemicals that could attack this gem are hydrofluoric acids.
    Rhodolite garnets are normally Ceylon (Sri Lanka) or African in origin and are bright, transparent Gems.

TREATMENTS - Rhodolite Garnet is typically not treated in any way.
CARE - It is usually safe to clean Rhodolite Garnet in an UltraSonic Cleaner, and extremely risky to use a steamer. We recommend using an Ionic Cleaner and/or warm soapy water and a soft brush as the best way to clean your Tsavorite.
