One of the rarest and most valuable types of garnet, tsavorite is found only in a small area on the border between Kenya and Tanzania. Only recently discovered, it is one of the rising stars
of the gemstone world.
It is a spectacular vivid green colour that rivals the finest emerald. Indeed, it is superior to emerald in
many ways. It has greater durability, brilliance and rarity. It is also never treated, unlike the vast majority of emerald which are
routinely fracture filled to improve their clarity.
Stones over one carat are very rare and valuable.
