We do mining of our own Tsavorite and Tourmaline at the Taita foothills in Tsavo area of Kenya. We specialize in open pit and tunnel mining. Using little blasting to protect the gemstones from cracking. They are then hand chiseled out of the mother rocks where they are either embedded in calcite or quartz. Once mined the stones are then washed and cleaned going on to the next stage of sorting.
