Tsavorite or Tsavolite is a variety of the Garnet group species 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. Rare in gem-quality over several carats (1 carat = 200 mg), Tsavorite has been found in larger sizes.
