Abstract - Summary 
(short description):
Green garnets meet very seldom in the World kimberlites. Green garnets (grossulare-uvarovite-pyrope) are found out for the first time in a significant amount in Nakyn field kimberlites and placers (Yakutia). The garnets have green, emerald-green, grey-green, yellow-green and bluish-green up to dark blue colors. Composition of green garnets in the Botuobinskaja and Mayskaja pipes clearly differ, but green garnets not met in the Nyurbinskaja pipe. Green garnets are found out in placers Nyurbinskaja, they could act in a placers from unknown kimberlitic source. Green garnets are an ideal search mineralogical marker. Green (blue-green) garnets from kimberlites form on composition original \"bridge\" between \"pyralspites\" and \"ugrandites\".
