#57 I16e-091 Tsavorite 9.7x7.6 Oval 2.97cts UTSZ

  • Tsavorite garnet's existence was originally unearthed in Tanzania, sparking an ongoing fascination with the green pebble as it reached the gemstone market in the early 1970's. Gracing the ground just steps across Tanzania's northern border, Tsavorite gleaned its name in honor of the Tsavo National Park in Kenya. Coined by its discoverer, Campbell Bridges, in conjunction with Tiffany and Co.'s former chairman, Henry Platt, Tsavorite's rarity and notoriety quickly rendered it a fine collector's gem. With mining production still alive in Tanzania, Kenya, and Madagascar, Tsavorite graces museum halls and couture creations alike.
