The green color on this tsavorite specimen is a rich, intensely saturated spearmint green that really draws the eye. The flashy, lustrous crystals are almost complete dodecahedrons. The tsavorite is sharply crystallized, with smooth, glossy faces and sharp edges and points. This is a very colorful and gemmy crystal for the species and the locality, and the vivid green color is really eye-catching. Tsavorite is considered to be the most valuable garnet varietal. There is a tiny bit of graphite and some white bits of a clay-like mineral from inside the pocket.
