More About these Rare Tsavorite Gemstone
Tsavorite (Saav-oh-rite) Garnet is much rarer than the rare Tanzanite, being a single-source gemstone. Only a small amount of fine Tsavorite crystals are found each year and most of these are very small. Good sized (1-2 carat) fine stones are difficult to get and the 2+ carat fine Tsavorites are very rare indeed. This is definitely a precious stone of the caliber of which heirlooms are made. People who know gemstones call the Tsavorite the "King of Green Gemstones" (yes - the Tsavorite is more prized than the Emerald by gemologists and collectors). The Tsavorite has the same hardness as an Emerald, but is much less likely to fracture. The colors are superb, ranging from light mint green to intense green.
Tsavorite was discovered in the 1960s and is only found in one region on the planet - East Africa. Tsavorite was originally found in the Tsavo National Park, on the border of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. This region is very difficult to get to and add to the equation poisonous snakes and lions everywhere - the mining is dangerous.
