This stone was named in the honour of Tsavo national park, and its name was proposed by the former president of Tiffany & Co., Henry Platt. Moreover, most of the stones are prefixed with “it”, which in Greek means the stone, and so it was named as Tsavorite.

    Yeah Lima… if you find this gemstone as per your requirements then you may go for it. It is best for Aquarians. If you are not then you may ask your astrologer if he could suggest you a gemstone that will be suitable for you.
