Uvarovite is a chromium-bearing garnet group species. It discovered in 1832 by Germain Henri Hess who named it after Count Sergei Uvarov (1765–1855), a Russian statesman and amateur mineral collector.

Uvarovite is the rarest of the common members of the garnet group. It is the only consistently green garnet species, with an emerald-green color. It occurs as well-formed fine-sized crystals.
