Many sites offering Tsavorite today subscribe to the "Volume" approach and offer large quantities of lower grade stones at very low prices. Don't be fooled by this. Lower and medium grade Tsavorite are considerably lower in value than the top grade which we specialise in. If you are looking for a very high quality Tsavorite then our Private Collection is the perfect place to look.
Although Tsavorite is not considered by many to be on the verge of extinction as is commonly believed of the Tanzanite, it is and always has been, an exceptionally rare gemstone. Only a small amount of fine Tsavorite crystals are found each year and many of these are small. Good sized 1-2 carat fine stones are difficult to get and the 2+ carat fine Tsavorites are very rare indeed. This is definitely a precious stone of the caliber of which heirlooms are made.
Tsavorite - An ancient gemstone indeed...
Tsavorite is a relatively new gemstone in terms of market exposure but in terms of geological history it is extremely old. The rocks in which it formed were first laid down over 2 billion years ago. The mighty snow capped Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, was itself only in its infancy when Tsavorite was already old. What could be more romantic than a superb, flashing green gemstone that was in existence long before the dinosaurs trod the earth?
Based at the only source of Tsavorite and with a 30 year history exporting worldwide,( See our History Timeline) you can shop with us with full confidence. We support every sale with our hard earned reputation and will stand by our quality.
