I just got a garnet online. When I received the stone, I was not happy. The colour of the stone was quite different than the colour in the dealer's photo. In the photo, the colour was bright orangy red. But my stone is orangy brown. Then the dealer told me he used full spectrum light bulb to shoot the photo. When I look at the stone under the sunlight its colour is closer to orangy red. Although the colour is still not as beautiful as the one in the photo, it makes me happier. Maybe this stone has some colour shift. I wonder what light do you use to observe the stones. I am planning to change my light in my room. Thank you.
