Fine pyrope garnet is found in many places. Garnets that were used in jewelry in Europe at the end of the nineteenth century came from Bohemia near Treibnitz, where they had been mined since the Bronze Age.
Pyrope garnet is now found mainly in South Africa, Brazil, Australia, the United States, Mexico and Myanmar.
Almandine garnet is found in Sri Lanka, Mozambique, India, Brazil, Alaska and Greenland.
The most popular is rhodolite garnet, which ranges in color from pink to purplish red and is mined in Africa, India, Sri Lanka and the United States.
