Tsavorite is an example of the fact that even nowadays, it is still possible for new gemstones to emerge onto the market. Tsavorite is a rare member of the garnet family and a new member to the jewelry market. As it is a garnet, it is the birthstone for the month of January. Tsavorite is a rich, deep green emerald colored garnet. It was discovered in Tsavo National Park, Kenya, in 1967 by Campbell Bridges, and was introduced to the trade in the 1970’s. Tiffany‘s Henry Platt, along with Campbell Bridges, coined the name tsavorite in 1974.
