The initial deposits of this beautiful deep green stone were first discovered in 1967 by the British explorer Campbell R Bridges, so it was only found fairly recently.
He found the first deposits in a place called Lemshuko in the mountains of Tanzania but was not allowed to prospect further, due to Tanzanian law. Tsavorite mineral interested him so much that he continued exploring looking for other places where it might be found, including in Kenya. As he felt the Kenyan geological structure was similar to the Tanzanian area, he got permission to prospect in Kenya.
Campbell Bridges found deposits of this Tsavorite Green Garnet in Kenya in 1971, and he opened mines and continued to supply this stone to the jewelry trade. At this time it hadn’t been named Tsavorite. He was living in the Tsavro East National Park in 2009 when he was murdered over a dispute at one of his mines.
Tiffany and Co had been selling the stone and named it at that time in honor of Tsavro East National Park, which is a wildlife preserve.
