Garnet is R3''R2'''(SiO4)3  (general formula)
Almandite is Fe3Al2(SiO4)3
Pyrope is Mg3Al2(SiO4)3
Spessartite is Mn3Al2(SiO4)3                                         
Grossulariteis Ca3Al2(SiO4)3
Andradite is Ca3Fe2(SiO4)3
Uvarovite is Ca3Cr2(SiO4)3

Mineral information on garnet
Garnet is derived from pomegranate in reference to its similarity
to the small red seeds in the fruit.
