I was lucky to find a cinnamon coloured hessonite garnet this week online.
I hesitated a bit......but in the end caved in, knowing I would forever regret
not getting it while I could and then start hunting for that exact shade..like forever.

Judging from the pictures I was a bit anxious it would look to much like an amber.
However, it is different from amber and I am very pleased with it.
I love that rich cinnamon colour with a hint of red, and it also reminds me of cider.

Here it is together with my two other garnets, they are the ones left and right from the phoenix.
They are all so different and I am so curious to see which other variations might turn up over time.

The whole bracelet (sorry if I bore you Embarassed , but I think this is my final autumn version).

Wow! So many beauties there! I do like the variation in your garnets. Your gamble paid off. I would also have worried about it looking like an amber.
