GARNETS GEMS: A LARGE FAMILY 
Garnet Gems is the name for a group of related mineral species. The group of garnets are formed by two isomorphic series (same structure but different composition).

CUT & SIZES

Transparent garnets can use any style of cut. The most common styles are standard shapes (oval, emerald, trillion, round, etc.). Translucent and opaque garnets are cut into cabochon, carvings and beads. Garnets with cat eye effect or asterism also are cut into cabochon. Green Hydrogrossular ("Transvaal Jade") is cut into cabochon or imitating the jade pieces. 

Garnets are available in large sizes, however Demantoid and Tsavorite are common small sizes, this two stones are the most expensive of all garnets. Tsavorite garnets is cut trying to maximize the weight retention of the rough. Demantoid Garnets is often cut into round, brilliant and cushion shapes (which facilitates viewing of its FIRE).
