Tanzanite

Tanzanite

Tanzanite is a rare and exquisite gemstone known for its captivating beauty and rich hues. Discovered in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 1967, tanzanite quickly gained popularity due to its striking blue-violet colour. It belongs to the mineral family called zoisite and owes its unique colour to the presence of vanadium and chromium.

Tanzanite is renowned for its pleochroism, which means it displays different colours when viewed from different angles. It often exhibits shades of blue, violet, and sometimes even burgundy. Its colour intensity and quality are highly valued, with the most prized tanzanite stones showcasing a deep, vivid blue hue.
