Tsavorite Garnet is the most expensive of the Garnet family and is characterized by a pure intense green with the medium plus tones being the most desirable, too light start looking a bit too insipid and too dark makes them less lively.  Marketed from 1964 it is a relative newcomer to the gemstone world and was popularized by Tiffany’s along with another newcomer Tanzanite.  Source locations are in Tanzania, Kenya and supposedly Madagascar. This is one of those roughs that is very hard to get and even harder to get in decent sizes.  Still one can always hope.
