Precious wonder tanzanite becomes the world darling
Since a Maasai tribesman stumbled upon a shimmering blue crystal in the foothills of Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro in 1967, Tanzanite has become one of the world's most cherished and sought-after gemstones.
It is no wonder. With its symphony of exquisite royal blue, lilac, and periwinkle hues, and supply of the gemstone likely to last just a single generation, tanzanite has captured the imagination of the world's most beautiful people and earned its rightful place next to diamonds as a 'must- have' gemstone.

Tanzanite is one of the most intrigueing and desirable precious gemstones of modern times. It is found in only one place on earth deep in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa. Experts say that the chances of tanzanite being found elsewhere in the world are less than one in a million. Its single source and limited supply mean that tanzanite is rarer than even diamonds!

Tanzanite was formed over 585 million years ago, yet this remarkable treasure remained hidden beneath the earth's surface until just 40 years ago, when according to local sources, a Maasai tribesman herding his cattle stumbled upon some crystals on the ground. Whilst the exact story of tanzanite's discovery remains something of a mystery. Maasai communities have built their own legends about the miraculous find. They tell stories of how the land was set ablaze by a bolt of lightning and that it was the heat from the 'magic fire in the sky' that transformed crystals on the ground into shimmering blue-violet gems. At first, it was thought that these were unusually vibrant sapphires. But it was soon confirmed that the new gemstones were more complex than sapphires, with a color that was more alluring, more exotic and most unexpected.
New York's celebrated jewellers, Tiffany & Co., heard about the discovery in Tanzania and were the first to introduce the dazzling new gemstone to the world. Tiffany & Co. christened the new find 'Tanzanite' in 1968, declaring it to be "the most beautiful blue stone to be discovered in over 2,000 years." It proudly stated that tanzanite could be found in only two places in the world, "in Tanzania and in Tiffany's!"

Tanzanite is exceptionally brilliant and is unique among gemstones for its multi-dimensional color. In gemological terms, tanzanite is Trichroic, which means that when brought out of the earth, its crystals radiate three different colors-blue, violet and burgundy. Once cut and polished, tanzanite becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of royal blue, indigo and periwinkle. There is a wide and varied range of hues, from fascinating light blues and lilacs to deep, dark blues and violets. Larger stones tend to exhibit the most intense colors and the most brilliance and fire, and the darker colors typically command the highest prices. Matching pairs are greatly sought after due to the rarity of finding two gemstones of identical color.

Grading & Certification :
The Tanzanite Foundation's Tanzanite Quality Scale is the first internationally recognized tanzanite specific grading system. Developed in collaboration with leading gemmological laboratories, the Tanzanite Quality Scale is based on a 4Cs criteria, grading tanzanite quality based on Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight, A fifth 'C' stands for confidence, and is your assurance that tanzanite accompanied with a Tanzanite Quality Scale Certificate is genuine, rare and precious. After reading the guidelines, one can choose the tanzanite that is the best for the buyer, based on the 4Cs criteria. These guidelines are upheld by the Tanzanite Foundation, and are based on the Tanzanite Foundation's Tanzanite Quality Scale, an internationally recognized system for grading tanzanite. The higher the combination of these characteristics, the rarer and valuable the gem stone.
