Special Features

Very Rare Blue-Green 5.56 Carat Tsavorite

Kuranze is a Tsavorite deposit world-renowned for its spectacular color. This deposit is in the area where Tsavorite was first discovered, near the famous Tsavo game reserve contains more Chromium than most and the result is a truly spectacular green that would put the finest Muzo emerald to shame. Kuranze material is mostly very small and highly included despite its wonderful, unique color, but occasionally high clarity larger pieces are mined which are highly coveted.

This is truly rare piece. Tsavorites in the 2+ carat range in top grades are rare; in 5 carats they are exponentially rarer. This stone has the added advantage of hailing from the renowned Kuranze mines in the original Tsavo deposit in Kenya. This mine is the only one that produces a bluish-green hue in Tsavorite, due to the high presence of Chromium as well as Vanadium. This mine's drawback is that most of the production is very included; so a 5 carat, virtually flawless intense bluish green stone from this mine is an extremely rare occurrence. If you are looking for a very rare Tsavorite with lovely intense color and a bluish modifier, then this is it. We don't expect to see another anytime soon...This is the quintessential collector’s or investor's Tsavorite.
