Note:

Malaia is from the Swahili word, malia. It means cast out or out of the family. This name is due to the fact that this type of garnet has different properties and does not fall into any specific category of the Garnet species. This name was coined by Tanzanian miners when the Japanese rejected the rough material from the Rhodolite Garnet they were purchasing. It was Americans who first saw the true beauty of this rare garnet, and began marketing it as Malaya Garnet in the Early 80's.

This particular gem is an outstanding example of this rare Garnet. A large, clean, bright and well cut rare gem with beautiful color!
