14.26 ct Hessonite Garnet
Hessonite garnets are a variety of grossular garnet, and while they are generally are a brownish orange color some can be found in other colors like this attractive yellow. Hessonite garnets are easy to identify due to the "heat wave" or "scotch in water" visual effect, and are known in Vedic astrology as Gomedh. Precision cut with one of my favorite radiant designs, it's a truly impressive gemstone.
