Summary: Mineralogic data on a chrome garnet, a spessartine, and a spandite from India are presented. The chrome garnet, named hanléite by Fermor, carries 89·7 % uvarovite, and is not a distinct mineral. The end-member compositions of the manganese garnets, recast from their chemical analyses, lend support to the existence of calderite and blythite as garnet end-members.
