Optical Properties of Hydrogrossular are its behavioral responses towards light. While few optical properties can be identified with naked eyes, other require special instruments by the gemologists to identify them. Hydrogrossular optical properties like luster, clarity, refractive index etc. are used to determine the non-destructive methods during gemstone identification and evaluation.
Hydrogrossular luster is the quantity of light the crystal reflects when light is incident on it. Hydrogrossular which is commonly found in White, Colorless, Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, Violet color, is Translucent in nature.
