Rhodolite garnet can be identified by its rose or raspberry red color. Since it is a mix of pyrope and almandine garnet in composition, it is similar to both. Its purplish or pinkish tones can set it apart from the deeper reds of other garnets. Garnet can be distinguished from other gem types by its occurrence in metamorphic rock, its hardness (6.5 - 7.5 on the Mohs scale), color, refractive index and cubic crystal structure. However, the quickest way to identify garnet is with the use of strong neodymium magnets. Garnet is attracted to neodymium magnets because it contains high concentrations of iron and/or manganese.
Rhodolite garnet gemstones are quite tough and durable. Proper care for rhodolite garnets includes protecting them from hard blows, which could damage them. To clean your rhodolite garnets, simply use warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Be sure to rinse well to remove soapy residue. As with most gemstones, ultrasonic cleaners and steamers are not recommended. Rhodolite garnets should not be exposed to sudden changes in temperature. Always remove any jewelry or gemstones before exercising, cleaning or engaging in harsh physical activities such as sport. Store rhodolite garnets away from other gemstones to avoid scratches. It is best to wrap gemstones in soft cloth or place them inside a fabric-lined jewelry box.
