  • Yttrium-aluminum garnet is the only synthetic garnet that is still used in jewelry as imitations of jewelry stones.

 

  • The pure YAGs are colorless, the introduction of impurities allows one to obtain various colors, for example, an admixture of chromium - green, cobalt - blue, manganese - red, titanium - yellow.

 

  • Colorless YAG is used as an imitation of diamond, and green is so similar to a demantoid that it is almost impossible to distinguish it visually.
