Tsavorite Garnet



      Tsavorite is the trade name for the emerald-green variety of Grossular Garnet. Tsavorite Garnets are one of the most popular and expensive forms of Garnet.

      Tsavorite Garnet is named after the Tsavo East National Park in Kenya, and was first discovered in Tanzania in 1967. Tsavorite Garnets are colored by traces of vanadium and chromium within the crystal structure. Tsavorite Garnets are typically sourced from their primary deposits in Tanzania, Kenya, and Madagascar.

      Humans have been enchanted with Garnets for more than 5,000 years, dating back to the Bronze Age. Garnets are a large group of rock-forming silicate minerals. They are found all over the world in metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks. Most Garnets form in volcanic environments when aluminum-rich sedimentary rocks like shale are subject to intense heat and pressure. The Garnet group consists of several different species including: Almandine, Andradite, Grossular, Pyrope, Spessartine and Uvarovite. 

      Garnet is the modern & traditional January birthstone and is the second anniversary stone. Garnet is derived from the Greek word “granatum” after its striking resemblance to the seeds in a pomegranate. Much of what has been recorded in history refers to red Garnets because they are the most common. Prior to the modern gem testing equipment, Green Garnets could have been mistaken for other stones.
