Garnet Group Minerals

Garnet group minerals have, to date, been found only on Earth, where they are most common in metamorhic rocks. They are also found in igneous rocks in the Earth's upper mantle, and in detrital sedimentary rocks. Photo at left of garnet grains in an alluvial concentrate of a Siberian river near Baikal lake, courtesy of Michail Taran.

The photo to the left is representative of this mineral group; however, it is not the same sample on which spectra listed below were measured.
