This is a fairly new find of Chromium Colored Green Garnet coming from Kunar, Afghanistan. OK Folks, we have NOT tested this; however, we are 99.9% sure it is the Afghan equivalent of Tsavorite! We have been hunting this material down for probably close to 6 years with little luck; however, over the course of the last few years we have managed to procure 2 parcels, this being part of the second parcel and considerably larger than the first. Overall we estimate that the lot is running roughly 30%+ High Facet Grade; however, this material is Melee averaging in around .20 carats and only ideally suited for Commercial Cutting or other Jewelry projects.
This material was purchased at a steal and that is the reason we can offer it at $2.00 Per gram! The material in this lot is fairly uniform and most is in the .15-.25 carat range with a few pieces that go up to about 1 or so carats though there are only a few of those. Overall the material is comparable to African material; however, many stones do show a dull etched exterior that looks to be natural unlike the Green Garnet produced in Africa. We don't really anticipate seeing much of this for the foreseeable future so we advise grabbing this as quick as you can! We are confident that for the price we have on this you could probably sell it in East Africa for Profit!!
