TSAVORITE & DEMANTOID GARNET

Garnet is the gemstone for January.  Garnet is a gemstone with many colors and varieties. 

TSAVORITE

Brilliant green Tsavorite garnet is a rather young gemstone.  It is found in the bushland along the frontier between Kenya and Tanzania.  It was discovered in 1967 by the British geologist Campbell R. Brides in the northeastern part of Tanzania.  It is a green grossular garnet with a index of  7 1/2 on the mohs scale of hardness. Besides being hard, it is a very tough gemstone making it very wearable for jewelry. Tsavorite is a brilliant gemstone with a refractive index of 1.734/44. Contrary to most other gemstones, tsavorite as well as the other garnets are not treated with oil or heated to improve their appearance. Tsavorites are rare gemstones and stones over two carats can be quite valuable.

DEMANTOID

The demantoid is one of the most brilliant gemstones that exist, but not commonly known.  Like the tsavorite it is a green garnet of the highest quality.  The demantoid is an andradite garnet with an incredible refractive index of 1.880-1.889.  The hardness of this gemstone is just under 7 on the mohs scale making it suitable for use in todays jewelry.  This gemstone is hard to find and valuable with stones over two carats extremely rare.  The color ranges from a yellowish green to a brownish green with the darker emerald green extremely rare.  It was discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in 1868 and more recently in Namibia.  To view our loose demantoid garnet gemstones, click here.
