Garnet varieties rate between 7.5 - 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, making these gems perfect for everyday wear. The high refractive index of Garnet makes them super lustrous and sparkly, rivalling diamonds! There are Garnet options that suit every budget, making it one of the more versatile gemstone choices.
