Uvarovite is the only consistently green garnet species, with a striking emerald-green color. Specimens of uvarovite are much sought after by collectors for their outstanding brilliance and color.

It was first discovered in 1832 by Germain Henri Hess (1802-1850), a Swiss-born Russian chemist, doctor and mineralogist. Hess named it after Count Sergei Semenovitch Uvarov (1765-1855), a Russian statesman, amateur mineral collector and President of the Russian Academy of Sciences from 1818 to 1855.

Uvarovite drusy, like all drusy materials, is more fragile than a faceted or cabochon gemstone. Therefore, reasonable care is needed in setting and wearing such material, to prevent crushing or dislodging the tiny crystals that adhere to the matrix.
