This high quality garnet comes from the Umba river in Tanzania, Africa. Sometimes mistaken with the Umba garnet, these Umbalite garnets differ in their pink-red and purple-red color. They lack the orange hues of the Umba. Being a garnet, the Umbalite is a 6.5 to a 7.5 on the Mohs scale. We reserve the right to substitute these individual pieces with material of equal or greater value. These pictures are not to scale so please read each description for the actual size.
