***The first person to attribute demantoid to the garnet group was Nils Nordensheld, the Finnish mineralogist, who was appointed as international researcher of the Russian Science Academy in the middle of 19th century. He came across some green crystals that were sent over from the Ural Mountains for a detailed inspection and correctly identified them as a variety of andradite garnet.***
