Malaya Garnet Gemstones
7.0 - 7.5 on the Mohs scale.
Malaya garnet is dark brownish red in color. Malaya, in Swahili means "worthless". These garnets, found in Eastern and Central Africa, were once discarded in favor of the richer colored pyrope and rhodolite garnets. Today they are highly valued, but the Swahili name has stuck.
Malaya garnet is not enhanced.
