For Your Library: “Terra Garnet” by Vladyslav Yavorskyy

Terra Garnet by Vladyslav Y. Yavorskyy

Gemstone dealer Vladyslav Yavorskyy has published a stunning book titled Terra Garnet, celebrating these incredible gems. Garnets comprise a complex group of gems divided into many different species and varieties. We love that this book showcases the vivid colors of these gems that are commonly associated with a brownish-red hue. From the fiery orange of spessartite garnets to the rich greens of tsavorites and demantoids, you can see garnets in their wild array of colors on the pages of Terra Garnet.

Yavorskyy is also owner of IVY New York, a company that creates exquisite jewelry with some of the world’s rarest gems, including garnets.

Visit Garnet Splendor for January: Jewels from IVY New York to see some of their stunning work.

And for more colored gemstone reading, visit Terra Spinel, which was co-written by Yavorskyy and renowned gemologist Richard Hughes.
