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.
