About

A stunning demantoid garnet and diamond 18k yellow gold lizard brooch. There is approximately .63cts total in diamonds. While garnets have been known since ancient times, the demantoid variety was not discovered until 1868 in Russia's western central Ural Mountains. Possessing an unusual green color and a dispersion greater than that of diamond, it quickly became a treasured and expensive gemstone. From the time of the demantoids find until about 1919, they were popular in Russia as the famous Peter Carl Fabergé made jewelry with them. With communist Russia, these gems went out of style. More stones were then found in the Bobrovka River in the 1970s and 1980s. Around 1999 very limited production occurred in the central Ural Mountains. Many of the stones found then are for sale today.
