For the last several years there has been a decided dearth of truly fine, gem Tsavorite in the marketplace.  Stone are out there, but they typically have some light inclusions (the classic East African dusting of 'sugar') or tend to be very poorly cut.  This last point is somewhat surprising, but true - Tsavorite more often than not is cut on par with Sapphire where native is the norm.  So, keeping this in mind we are always on the lookout for nice examples we can offer at a competitive cost - hence this beauty.  A clean gem in a very popular shape in the absolute top color for the species, that rich green that can really be Tsavorite and few others.  Additionally, the cutting is excellent, a precision US job - nothing at all to detract.  A tough quality to source.
