Hi all,

We are considering the purchase of a Hessonite Garnet / Coral.

Would you be able to recommend any vendors who are recognized by the community as having natural unheated untreated Hessonites. Also, in your experience, are Hessonites and corals generally sold treated.

I have attached a picture of a couple of hessonites and a coral. Could you also please share your thoughts on the colour / any other characteristic that can be deduced from the pictures (colour/cut),

Thanks.

Hessonite is generally untreated but there's plenty of dyed coral in the market. Colour is very personal so I don't know what colour you like best.

Hessonite: Are you looking for a warm honey brown or bright golden orange?
Coral: Are you looking for pinkish or reddish?
