Some garnets collected from the Kothagudem area of Khammam district in Andhra Pradesh were characterized by chemical analysis. The results show the garnets to be of almandine (Fe+23 Al2Si3O12) pyrope (Mg3Al2Si3O12) group. Dielectric constant (ɛ) and dielectric loss (tanδ) were measured as a function of frequency and temperature in the frequency range of 100 Hz to 100 KHz and from room temperature to 400°C. The room temperature measurement was extended to 10 MHz, AC conductivity was calculated from the data on ε and tan δ. DC conductivity was also measured.

The dielectric properties (dielectric constant and loss) of a single crystal of yttrium iron garnet (Y3Fe5O12) were measured in the temperature range 77–725 K and in the frequency range 100 Hz-1 MHz. AC conductivity was derived from dielectric constant and loss. DC conductivity was measured in the temperature range 30–725 K. Thermoelectric power (TEP) was measured from 77–800 K. On the basis of the results, conduction in this garnet is interpreted as due to small polarons. The nature of conduction at different temperature ranges is discussed in the light of existing reports on defect formation.
