Tanzanite from Tanzania: Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone. It occurs in only one place worldwide. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint of purple, is a wonderful colour. Thanks to its unusual aura and the help of the New York jeweller's Tiffany, it has rapidly become one of the most coveted gemstones in the world.
As one of the newest and most exotically colored gemstones, Tanzanite is part of the Zoisite mineral species and is only found in East Africa.
Gorgeous color! Tanzanite from Merelani HIlls, Arusha Region, Tanzania. "Bi-color Tanzanite with an unusual coloration of magenta over purple in the front direction, a unique coloration in my experience. I sold this crystal years ago and recently got it back in a trade - it's the only one of this type I've ever seen. Gemmy too."
