Tsavorite Green Garnet Jewelry

Unveiling the Mesmerizing Beauty of Tsavorite Garnet: Nature’s Green Treasure
In the world of gemstones, there are few treasures as brilliant and vibrant as the tsavorite garnet. With its lush green hue, this gemstone has captured the hearts of gem lovers. But what makes tsavorite garnet so special? Let’s embark on a journey to uncover the allure and significance of this stunning gemstone.

In the gemstone world, tsavorite is new, having been discovered only about 60 years ago. One of the largest veins was discovered in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, from which the gemstone derived its name. But few deposits have been found outside of East Africa, making this gemstone extremely rare.

Tsavorite is a type of garnet. While most probably think of garnet as a dark red, it comes in all colors. While tsavorite can come in many shades of green, the most celebrated and valuable is the deep, forest green. Because tsavorite is a garnet, it is the perfect gemtone to gift a January birthday girl, as it is her birthstone. Garnet is also the gemstone of the second wedding anniversary, making tsavorite jewelry a perfect gift to celebrate two years of marriage. Because of its green color, it is also considered as an alternative to May’s birthstone – emerald. We’ll compare the two green gemstones below.

Tsavorite garnet is not only renowned for its rarity, but also for its brilliance. In addition, tsavorite is a garnet – a very durable type of gemstone. Tsavorite garnet’s exceptional durability and resistance to abrasion make it perfect for daily wear, ensuring its beauty can be enjoyed for years to come. Its inherent sturdiness and longevity further enhance the appeal of tsavorite garnet as a cherished gemstone, for both its aesthetic splendor and practical heartiness.

Because of the color similarity, it’s hard not to compare tsavorite to emerald. Let’s see how the two gemstones stack up next to each other.

Tsavorite vs. Emerald

  • Brilliance
    Winner: Tsavorite
    Tsavorite is much more brilliant than emerald, which is characterized by its cloudy inclusions and more opaque color. Tsavorite is more translucent, has less inclusions, and reflects more light. Therefore, it has more sparkle.
  • Heartiness
    Winner: Tsavorite
    Tsavorite is a harder, making it more resistant to chips and scratches. This can be especially significant in a ring that is meant to withstand decades of daily wear, such as an engagement ring, or Mother’s ring. After 25 years of daily wear as a ring, emeralds often need to be polished, as the surface scratches will cause it to lose its luster.
  • Rarity
    Winner: Tsavorite
    Tsavorite is somewhere between 100 to 200 times more rare than emerald.
  • Affordability
    Winner: Tsavorite
    Even though tsavorite is more rare, brilliant, and hearty than emerald, because it is lesser known, it is still not as in-demand, making it a more affordable option.
  • Popularity
    Winner: Emerald
    Emeralds are much more popular than tsavorite. There are several factors, but mostly this is because tsavorites are not as well-known
