Although all gem garnets share the same crystal structure, gemologists divide them according to their chemistry – those that contain aluminum, as part of their basic chemistry, and those that contain calcium.

The top triangle represents the aluminum garnets – pyrope, almandite, and spessartite – and the lower calcium garnets – uvarovite, andradite, and grossularite. At each point of each triangle, there’s one garnet species that represents chemical purity. For example, in the top triangle, almandite is a theoretically pure iron-aluminum garnet, and pyrope is a pure magnesium-aluminum garnet. In nature, no garnet is ever pure, and garnet species mix to produce a range of gems with different colours and physical properties.

In tanzanite, the most-prized colour in fine stones is a pure blue similar to fine sapphire’s, or an intense violet-blue all its own. Tanzanite with a bluish purple bodycolour is also popular, but less valuable. In any shade, pale colours are less prized than saturated ones.

Amethyst is the gem that’s most associated with the colour purple, although there are other purple gems, like sapphire and tanzanite. The finest amethyst colour is a strong reddish purple or purple, with no visible colour zoning.
The first grade includes the best amethysts. They’re a vivid, medium-dark to dark reddish purple or purple, and the best of them have no visible face-up colour zoning. This grade might be described as “super,” “extra,” or “AAA.” Some dealers also use “African” or “Zambian” for this grade.
Gems in the second grade are a little less saturated in colour. Although they’re attractive, some might show face-up colour zoning. Or they might be slightly included. Dealers often call calibrated amethysts in this grade “medium-dark,” “AA” or “A”.
The third grade is considerably lighter in tone and saturation than the better ones – a light lilac rather than an intense purple. Gems in this grade are popular in mass-market jewelry, and they’re usually much less expensive than more intensely coloured goods. Dealers might call them “B” or “medium.”
The fourth and lowest grade is lighter still, and not very attractive. Hues are less saturated, so they take on a grayish to slightly grayish pale purple colour. Stones with a brownish tint are even less marketable. Gems in this grade tends to be low in value. Dealers often call them “light” or “C”.
