Tsavorite is a variety of Grossular Garnet which is a member of the Garnet Group of minerals that includes Almandine, Andradite, Grossular, Pyrope, Spessartine and Uvarovite. All Garnets fall into these basic varieties and some Garnets are a combination of two. The Garnets are a complex family of minerals all with similar crystalline structures but varying greatly in chemical composition and properties. Tsavorite is from the Grossular variety and is colored deep green by vanadium. It was originally thought to be colored green by chromium, but this occurs only in trace amounts. It is now known to get its incredible deep green coloring from significant amounts of vanadium. Demantoid Garnet on the other hand, gets its green color from chromium. Tsavorite is found in only a few locations in the world: the Tsavo National Park near Lualenyi, Kenya; Turkana district, Rift Valley Province, Kenya; Gogogogo Commune, Ejeda, Tulear Province, Madagascar; Merelani Hills, Umba Valley, Arusha Region, Tanzania.

Tsavorite is named after the Tsavo National Park in Kenya where it is found. The name Grossular is from the Latin word grossularia, meaning gooseberry, because of the resemblance of the light green Grossular Garnet to the color of the gooseberry fruit. The name Garnet comes from the Latin word granatus meaning grain. This is from the comparison of garnet grains in rock looking like the dark red seeds of the Pomegranite fruit scattered on the ground.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul.

Authorities in our business will tell in no uncertain terms that Lorem Ipsum is that huge, huge no no to forswear forever. Not so fast, I'd say, there are some redeeming factors in favor of greeking text, as its use is merely the symptom of a worse problem to take into consideration.

Safe delivery, ensures the movement of goods in a short time.

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what's not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you're a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less.
