|This Tsavorite weighs 0.73cts and was bought back in the 1990s, when Tsavorite was being introduced into some stores. The owner of All That Glitters purchased it and created a ring to show off this piece. In 2023, the ring was melted down, diamonds removed and now this Tsavorite Center Stone is available for sale. A rich deep chrome color. Photo doesn't do this gemstone justice - difficult to obtain accurate color. Priced to move at only - $975. (Price subject to change)|
|Very Lively Bright Green 1.13ct Square Cushion Tsavorite Garnet. (awa-23-02) $1,525|
|This is something unusual for finer quality colored gemstones - we found a small parcel of
three nicely faceted bright, eye clean Tsavorites and can offer them at a really goood price considering
the trade prices seen at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in 2023. Tsavorites and Mint Merelani Garnet,
(Green Grossular - lighter than Tsavorite), are selling at MUCH higher prices than previous years.
(awa-23-01a) Cushion, 1.01ct - $1,010 SOLD!
(awa-23-01b) Oval, 1.32ct - $1,320 SOLD!
(awa-23-01c) Triangular, 1.14ct - $1,140 SOLD!

|Deep Green Tsavorite Garnet Oval weighing 1.28cts. (bsgl-20-01) $2,560|
|Very large 6.93ct Neony Green Grossular Garnet, faceted in the U.S. from All That Glitters rough, by one of our talented and wonderful cutters. Bright lively gem with hints of dispersion. As expected in this size, there are some small inclusions that can be seen with a loupe, but a plus to indicate natural origin as this large size is not often seen and anything indicating natural crystal growth will be a help in identification. Has a 'glow' which is unexpected for this Garnet Group. Though this comes from the same area as Mint Merelani Garnet (Grossular), a relative of Tsavorite, the brightness and glow is very unlike the typical Mint Merelani as that more common material doesn't necessarily glow like this does. The Garnet Group is very complex and perhaps this has a larger percentage of some element - or perhaps this could even be a new type of Garnet or oddity. This was a difficult gemstone to photograph and to obtain an accurate color. On our laptop monitor, we have an accurate color; with so many devices now displaying images, accurate color is a problem since screens are not calibrated. The photos do not do this gemstone justice as the color is not exactly accurate - there is very little one can do if the photo or video just doesn't show that "pop" that one sees in person. The video color is certainly not close to the color the eye sees - and the true brilliance/sparkle as well as dispersion is not captured, but it goes give an idea of what the gem looks like to some extent. In 2020, we saw a 1.6+ct round, without the glowing green this gem has, and the retail on it was approximately $2500/ct. The 2023 Tucson Trade (Wholelsale) Prices for smaller gemstones of this species, are much higher as well as other fine quality colored gemstones in general However, they are that very light Pastel Mint and not this vivid glowing color - the wholesale price for small material is being seen at over $1500/ct. With this being such a large example of this gemstone species, you will be surprised at our low pricing of only $2,200/ct! Ideally, we would like to increase the price of this as we cannot replace this size, color, cutting, etc. at our current price. (vyg-19-03) $15,246|

|A - Photo doesn't do this 1.63ct Oval Tsavorite Garnet any
justice. It is much brighter and lively with a nice sparkle.
|B - A super 1.63ct Brilliant Square Cushion Tsavorite
Garnet of a nice deep green without being too light or too dark!
This has a great Chrome color and is based on the the 2010 The Guide wholesale value for an Extra Fine Tsavo of this size, color, cutting, etc. Approx dims: 6.5x5.7x5.2mm There was a small scratch on the table and an issue on the culet. Couldn't see this with the unaided eye, but when someone wanted to know the clarity (very eye clean, really nothing under 5x) - we saw these two issues and decided to send the gemstone to our master cutter for some tweaking. Lost about 1.5 point s (0.015cts) - that's how small the issues were and of course, credit goes to our master facetor for his expertise, knowledge and skill!
|Actually, the colors of the two pieces above are not too different from each other. Some may describe them as Chrome Green, but certainly nice Tsavos neither too dark or too light!|

3.63ct Merelani Mint Grossular Garnet - Sculpted!
We just finished our first sculpted gemstone from the rough. It is a Merlani Mint Grossular Garnet weighing 3.63ct. It has several optical dishes on the back and one on the front - it also has an overall shape where a designer can tuck a small diamond or round stone next to the stone as the gemstone has an area that looks like it is made just for this purpose! The color is bright and it is clean. We can no longer purchase the rough at this price....... 3.63ct Grossular Garnet - Sculpted: $8,349 (eagt-03-03c)
Mint Grossular Garnet from Merelani Area (East Africa)U.S. Faceted!
|1.99ct Round (eagt-03-03a) $2,985|
|This material is wonderful and quite rare. It is found in the same area that Tanzanite comes from. In the right light, these stones show quite a bit of dispersion; we didn't expect to see this, but some garnets , like Demantoid, some Mali garnets and Grossular, exhibit this physical property which is the same property found in Diamond! The actual color of the material was difficult to capture. The body colors is a minty green (medium) and is cut using the Portuguese cut and dazzles the eye wilth glitter and sparkle due to the number of facets. (Note that the round has small inclusions, which is typical for this material, but due to the faceting, they cannot be seen readily with the unaided eye).|
