Garnet symbolism is rich and varied. The traditional January birthstone has also inspired many legends and popular associations with love, friendship, light, and vitality. It’s one of the oldest known gemstones. The Ancient Greeks and Romans highly valued this gem. In fact, the word “garnet” comes from the Latin word granatus for seed or grain, most likely a reference to the seeds of the pomegranate fruit.
Tsavorite (or tsavolite) is a variety of the Garnet group known as grossular; a calcium-aluminium Garnet. In 1967, British gem prospector and geologist Campbell R. Bridges discovered a deposit of green grossular in the mountains of north-east Tanzania in a place called Lemshuko, 15 km (9.3 mi) away from Komolo, the first village. The find interested the gem trade, and attempts were made to export the stones, but the Tanzanian government did not provide permits. He was successful in searching for the deposit over the border in Kenya in 1971 when he found the mineral variety there and was granted a permit to mine the deposit. Bridges was murdered in 2009 when a mob attacked him and his son on their property in Tsavo East National Park. The name tsavorite was proposed by Tiffany and Co. president Henry Platt in honour of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. Small deposits of gem grade material have been found in Pakistan and Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. Gem-quality material over several carats (1 carat = 200 mg) is rare and thus expensive!
