A beautiful vivid green gemstone with a desirably high refractive index. Tsavorite is considered amongst the most desirable of all Garnets and until its discovery in 1968, no other gemstone except Emerald could offer such a rich green colour. Just as they had done with Tanzanite, in 1974 the famous jewellery company Tiffany & Co. started heavily promoting the gemstone in the USA. Tsavorite is said to comfort and warm the heart and also stimulates the immune system ( if you are a crystal property believer). Sources of the gem are becoming rapidly depleted in  Kenya,  with some reports stating that during the last decade, yields are down by  80%. So potentially a good investment as prices are likely to rise.

The name Garnet is derived from the Latin word “granatus” as it is similar in shape to the seed of a pomegranate. This jewel supposedly has the ability to illuminate even the darkest of rooms; it is written that Noah used the gem to light the inside of the Ark. There are many other legends that involve Garnet’s mystical lighting and brightening capabilities (known technically today as fluorescence).  Several cultures have finely ground Garnet and heated it to act as a medicinal remedy for illness. When studying the myths and legends surrounding Garnet, whether it be stories relating to the Aztecs, Romans, Egyptians, Native Americans or British Royalty, there is one theme common in all civilisations, across all periods of recorded time: Garnet is the ultimate gift of love.

 

All gemstones can be damaged through wear and tear. Make sure you check for loose stones or damaged claws periodically. Always take your jewellery off whenever you are doing activities that might cause damage. Remember that household cleaners and chlorine in swimming pools can damage Gold and many gems.

FYI: If you have thicker earlobes this tiny hoop may not fit! Please ensure jewellery will fit your desired placement before purchasing as I am unable to offer refunds or exchanges on pierced jewellery.
