The Bohemian garnet stone belongs to the pyrope group. Its characteristic fiery red colour and its transparency have made it a popular gemstone since time immemorial. When jewellery with small garnet stones became fashionable in the 18th century, Empress Maria Theresa issued an export ban on Bohemian garnet stones in 1762 to protect the local jewellery industry.
