SPESSARTITE GemShoppy April 19, 2015 Gemstones The present sources of the stone are Sri Lanka, Burma, Madagascar, Brazil, Australia, and U.S.A. The different species are pyrope, almandine, spessartine, grossular (varieties of which are hessonite or cinnamon-stone and tsavorite), uvarovite and andradite. The garnets make up two solid solution series: pyrope-almandine-spessarite and uvarovite-grossular-andradite. Spessarite stone provides a grounding energy that focuses on career success, empowerment and productivity. This is a stone for inspiration and creative passion. While the Smoky Quartz is very protective makes a great combo.
