From American Gem Society, “Kenya is best known for a garnet which is not your typical red garnet – in fact, it’s a grassy green that is brighter and generally “cleaner” than an emerald. This gem is named after Kenya’s Tsavo National Park – the tsavorite garnet. And, for fine jewelry purposes, you can’t find this gemstone anywhere else in the world!” And, “It’s also one of the few gemstones that don’t require (and won’t respond well) to any type of treatment or enhancement. If you’re a gemstone purist, this is the one for you!
Only found in one area in Kenya and neighboring Tanzania, tsavorites are rare. In addition, they were only recently discovered in the 1960s.
