The History of Tanzanite

Tanzanite hasn't been around too long. Discovered in 1967 by a Masai tribesman, tanzanite gets its name from its country of origin, Tanzania. They are cultivated from the hills of Merelani. This five mile stretch of land where these precious stones are found is the only place in the world where tanzanite is mined. Tanzanite is one thousand times rarer than diamonds, if you can believe it!

Said to rival rubies, sapphires, and emeralds in their beauty, tanzanite definitely has a special something to it. When shown in different directions, tanzanite changes colors. Different shades of blues and purples reflect across the surface, creating a dance of color.

In different lightings, tanzanite is said to change colors. Cool lighting makes these gemstones appear bluer, while warm lighting makes them more purple.

It's no wonder to us that tanzanite was added to the birthstones registry for December in 2002. Its cool colors really resonate with the winter chill of the month. But even if December isn't your birthstone, why not add this stunning gemstone to your collection today?
