Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania
Thumbnail, 2.5 x 1.9 x 1.7 cm
This thumbnail of tsavorite garnet not only is gemmy and a lovely emerald green color, but it is also on real matrix of silvery black graphite and a minor blue apatite - a most unusual association! The largest tsavorite crystal is doubly terminated and measures 1.1 cm in length. Overall, it weighs 39.84 carats. This is an excellent tsavo thumbnail specimen! MORE BRILLIANTLY LUSTROUS In PERSON!
