As a lover of all things jewelry, I have to say, the Tanzanite gemstone is truly a marvel. It's a rare gem that is only found in one place in the world, Tanzania, making it a precious find indeed. Known for its breathtaking blue-violet hues, Tanzanite's color ranges from light pastels to deep, intense blues – the richer the color, the more valuable the stone. Its popularity has soared over the past few years, making it a popular choice for engagement rings, statement pieces, and special occasion jewelry.

 

But it's not just the color that makes Tanzanite so unique. It's also known for its pleochroic properties, which means that it displays different colors depending on the angle from which it's viewed. From one direction, it may appear blue; from another, purple; and from yet another, a mix of both. This quality makes it a versatile gemstone that can be paired with a variety of metals and other gemstones.

 

What I find particularly fascinating about Tanzanite is that it has only been known to the world for a little over half a century. It was discovered in 1967 by a local tribesman and later brought to the attention of Manuel de Souza, a prospector and gem enthusiast. Souza recognized its potential for the international market and named it in honor of its country of origin - Tanzania.

 

If you're looking for a gemstone that is both unique and precious, Tanzanite is an excellent choice. Its rarity, stunning color, and versatile qualities make it a gemstone that is valued by collectors and jewelry enthusiasts alike. Plus, its relatively recent discovery means that it's still an emerging stone in the market, making it a great investment for years to come.
