Hessonite | Silver Street Jewellers

Hessonite, or "cinnamon stone" is a popular variety of grossular. The name derives from the Ancient Greek: Hessan meaning inferior, which is an allusion to its lower durability and lower density than other garnet varieties




Hessonite comes mainly from Sri Lanka and India, where it is found in placer deposits, though it is present in Brazil and California. In Greek and Roman cultures the stone was used for jewelry and engravings.
