About Purple Garnet

Almost too yummy, you'll want to eat it up with a spoon. This luxuriously large garnet exhibits more of a violet tone than you may expect from a garnet.
We call this intense hue with red flashes Royal Purple. The color calls to mind the glory that was Greece, where purple dye obtained from a shellfish was more expensive than anything else in the empire. 
Only the noble classes were permitted to wear purple, and the association of this color with power and prestige persists to this day.
