Demantoid Garnet - from Fabergé to modern day, capturing the imaginations of collectors

Kat Florence Presents-Journey To The Stone With Don Kogen by Don Kogen

Episode notes

What do Fabergé and Don Kogen have in common? Demantoid Garnet. Just as Fabergé popularized Demantoid Garnet among royals and czars, Kogen influenced its modern market: he discovered the one-off Madagascar Demantoid deposit and sold the lion’s share of it. Due to a characteristic in its crystal structure unique among Garnets, the Demantoid Garnet disperses a fire that surpasses even Diamond. With the world now lacking a significant supply of it, Demantoid Garnet is poised to become one of the rarest, most valuable gems on the scene.
