Tsavorite Garnet

Tsavorite Garnet

Garnet is the largest of the gem material families. Owing to it granular form and often associated colors, the term ‘garnet’ is derived from the latin terms for ‘grain’ and the fruit ‘pomegranate’. In the case of Tsavorite Garnet its’ name comes from where it was first found in 1967 near the Tsavo National Park, Kenya. It has vivid, radiant colors of Green to Emerald.

Garnet is the birthstone for the month of January, and can be used as a wedding anniversary stone to celebrate 2 or 6 years of marriage.

Garnet is the Zodiac stone for Capricorn and is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘calm’.

The Green in Tsavorite comes from the presence of Vanadium in its chemical composition.



Tsavorite Garnet has a high level of brilliance and is more durable than comparable sized Emeralds. Cut stones above 2 carats are very rare and high quality stones above 1 carat are still relatively expensive compared to many other gem materials of similar color eg Peridot. This being said, it is still significantly cheaper than a comparable quality Emerald.

Important locations from which Tsavorite Garnet is sourced include Kenya, Mali and Tanzania. Blossomjewels typically sources its Tsavorite Garnet from Kenya and Tanzania.

Tsavorite Garnet is reasonably hard with a Mohs’ rating of 7.5/10, so it is well suited for everyday wear.
