Hessonite, a.k.a Cinnamon Stone, is a more common variety of Grossular. The name comes from the Greek hēssōn, meaning inferior; an allusion to its lower hardness and lower density than most other garnet species varieties. It has a characteristic red color, inclining to orange or yellow, much like that of zircon. It have shown that many gemstones thought to be Zircons, especially engraved, were actually Hessonite. The difference is readily detected by the specific gravity, that of hessonite being 3.64 to 3.69, while that of zircon is about 4.6. Hessonite has a hardness of 7 on the mohs scale), while tmost garnet species are nearer 7.5. Hessonite comes chiefly from Sri Lanka and India where it is found generally in placer deposits, though its occurrence in its native matrix is not unknown. It is also found in Brazil and California.
