Cutter comments :

Mint garnet is a variety of grossular garnets with a light green color caused by chromium and vanadium. When the green is more intense and saturated, the gem is named Tsavorite Garnet. These gems are only found in Tanzania and Kenya, they are extremely rare and appreciated in luxe jewelry. Garnet also has the advantage of not being subject of any treatment except the cut.

I cut this one into a rather classic oval with 81 facets, the culet is not very deep which will make it easy to go into a ring or a pendant. The green is very intense and saturated, we are really on the border between mint garnet and Tsavorite. The gem also has a very beautiful shine. Some inclusions are visible with naked eye, without affecting the beauty of the stone.

L'Atelier Lazuli :

All the stones I sell are cut by myself at my workshop in Paris. Every gemstones from around the world have been cut to achieve the best possible color and brilliance. Also I always try when the rough’s shape allows it to offer an original and custom design.

I select and examine carefully every gemstone I get before cutting them, and I’m extremely vigilant about the rough’s quality. Also you will not find here lab grown stones, synthetics, fissures filled or irradiated stones. If a gemstone may have been heated (which in jewelry is very usual for some species), I mention it systematically in description.

Please feel absolutely free to contact me for every question, comment, personal project or simply to discuss with me about gemstones or gemcutting ! I will always answer as quick as possible.
