The shining green Tsavorite also called Tsavolite is a relatively young gemstone having been discovered in the late 1960's but introduced in 1971 by Tiffany and Co. It was discovered in the mountains in the north-east of Tanzania, and has become very rare and hard to find in larger sizes.

The name tsavorite was proposed by Tiffany and Co president Sir Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo National Park in Kenya. Apart from the source locality in Tanzania it is also found in Toliara (Tuléar) Province, Madagascar, but so far, no other occurrences of gem material have been discovered.

Tsavorite has an extraordinarily beautiful color and good transparency in vivid, radiant green. It is actually a green grossularite and comes from the colourful gemstone family of the Garnet. Like all the other garnets it is simply a piece of pure, unadulterated Nature. It has almost the same hardness as the (considerably more expensive) emerald, - approximately 7.5 on the Mohs scale - but it is markedly less sensitive. Thanks to its great brilliance, the tsavorite is, in this respect, a partner to match the classics: diamond, ruby and sapphire and is considered to be a precious gemstone.

Rare in gem-quality over several carats in weight, tsavorite has been found in larger sizes, but is very rare. Only in rare individual cases is a raw crystal of over 5 carats found, so a cut tsavorite of more than two carats is a rare and precious thing.

Tsavorite is a stone that is said to help find the inner beauty both in oneself and others. It is said to help one live one's own destiny rather than struggling along a path that is not truly theirs. Thus it relieves stress at a deep level.
