Never heard of the Tsavorite, also known as the green Garnet?
It was near the world-famous Tsavo National Park, in East-African bushland along the border between Kenya and Tanzania where it all began.
In 1967 the British geologist Campbell R. Bridges, was looking for gemstones in the mountains in the north-east of Tanzania.
He came across some strange nodules of rock. Inside these he found some beautiful green grains and crystal fragments.
What he had discovered was green grossularite, a mineral belonging to the colourful gemstone group of the Garnets, it was of an extraordinarily beautiful colour and good transparency.
What is it that makes the Tsavorite so desirable? It is its lively, uniquely radiant Green.
The colour range of the Tsavorite includes a springlike light green, an intense blue-green and a deep forest green - colours which have a refreshing and invigorating effect on the senses.
However, this gemstone is also valuable on account of its great brilliance.
It has, like all the other garnets, a particularly high refractive index and hardness, which actually makes it count as a full precious stone, because its even harder than Emerald.
Like all the other Garnets it is not enhanced, nor would it need that - It's simply a piece of pure, unadulterated Nature.
Garnet is said to cure melancholy and to warm the heart.
It also symbolises vitality in all its forms, such as strength and fertility.
Its powers include healing, strength, and it is often worn to relieve skin inflammations.
Garnet is believed to have the power to bring success in business, fame and popularity, providing protection and bringing spiritual awareness.
It is also the gem to be given on a 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary.
Garnet is January's birthstone.
The Tsavorite is 5 mm long and 4 mm wide.
The shank is 3.7 mm wide and 1.9 mm thick.
This ring is a UK size K (US size 5 1/2), which is a 51 mm inside circumference and a 16.1 mm inside diameter.
