I just purchased this 1.92 carat grossular from Ebay. In some lights there is a little blue, but there is also yellow. It has wonderful fluorescence under UV black light. Does it look minty to you or just green?

Each person has their own definition of what "minty" means. For some, it means just light green whilst for others, it means light bluish green. Secondly, you have the stone in hand, so only you can tell what modifiers it has. If it reacts to UV light, I would expect to see orange or orangish pink, not straight pink.

Thanks Chrono. Yes it is orangy pink under UV. It just didn't come through in this photo. Here is a shot with more orange showing.
