Tsavorite Garnet Information

MOH's scale of hardness: 7 to 7-1/2

Toughness : Fair to Good

Refractive Index : 1.740 (+.020 -.010)

Specific Gravity : 3.61

     Tsavorite is the intense Green Grossular Garnet named after the Tsavo National Park in Kenya.  Tsavorite was first discovered in 1967 and was named by Henry B. Platt, vice-president of Tiffany & Co., after the site of that find.
    Tsavorite is often compared to other Green Gemstones, and it is easily a match for the better known Emerald. Actually Tsavorite is superior to the Emerald in many ways, and it is a rarer stone. Tsavorite is a tougher, more durable stone with a higher luster, resulting in a higher polish.  It also has a higher refractive index, 1.74 for Tsavorite compared to 1.57 for Emerald, so Tsavorite is the brighter stone for setting with Diamonds since the Tsavorite will display more sparkle and fire. Shades vary from pure Green to yellowish Green. Like Emerald, most Tsavorite can have some visible inclusions.  Most Tsavorite production is under 1 Carat.  A Tsavorite weighing 2 carats is considered large!

TREATMENTS - Tsavorite Garnet is typically not treated in any way.
CARE - It is usually safe to clean Tsavorite Garnet in an UltraSonic Cleaner, and extremely risky to use a steamer. We recommend using an Ionic Cleaner and/or warm soapy water and a soft brush as the best way to clean your Tsavorite.

    We only feature and offer Natural Tsavorite Garnets. Tsavorite a is a valued Collectors Gemstone due to its rarity and its beauty.
