Antique demantoid garnet, pearl and diamond brooch made in the 1890’s

A brief history on demantoid garnets:

Garnets come in a range of colours from the commonly seen burgundy-red through to orange and the rarest of them all, the green demantoid garnet. First discovered in the Ural mountains in Russia is 1853, the demantoid garnet has a wonderful natural and unique inclusion called a “horse-tail” inclusion, which as the name suggests, is similar in look to a horse tail. This inclusion is not seen in any other variety of garnet. While there is another green garnet, the tsavorite garnet which is also spectacular, the demantoid garnet is the most rare and highly prized.
