Tsavorite is one of our favorite gemstones. Part of the garnet family, tsavorite is typically a bright green gem, similar to transparent emeralds. Their color and affordability make them an excellent alternative to the more expensive emerald with similar clarity and cut.
Tsavorite was discovered in Kenya and was named by Tiffany & Co after the Tsavo East National Park. Tsavorite can be found in very few places outside of Kenya, such as Tanzania and Madagascar.
