True, British geologist Campbell Bridges was on the trail of gemstones in 1967. But the odd lumps of earth bearing green sparkly bits threw him off. There had rarely been a sighting of green garnet, and never in the quantity that he would eventually find.
New gems are not all that common and when they are as dazzling at these colorful jewels, their fans are legion. This elegant gemstone packs all the pure green that emerald fans could ever dream of. What is doesn't have you don't want. And that's fractures. We adore emeralds so much, we forgive them for having so many natural fracture-like inclusions we've knicknamed them jardin as they look like branches growing.
Tsavorite stones appear wonderfully absent of those hard-to-mask inclusions that plague emeralds. They are a completely natural beauty to boot. No enhancements on these lovelies. The crystals take a magnificent polish and that contributes to their jaw dropping brilliance.
Take a look at them in their natural state, at the mine site.
