History of Tanzanite

Not only is tanzanite captivating because of its admirable blue shades, but it is also a fascinating stone regarding its history. Tanzanite of commercial quantities was only discovered in the 1960s. Consequently, it is one of the only stones that we have discovered this century that has achieved such great popularity.  It is only found in the norther region of Tanzania near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. Above all, the tanzanite mines are all located in a space of only eight square miles. Therefore, the name of the precious gemstone of December birthstone jewellery signifies its unique and limited geographic origins.

Tanzanite is in fact the bluish indigo and violet variety of the mineral zoisite that comes in many colours. Another interesting fact about tanzanite is that it can appear to be different colours when viewed from different angles.

We use a beautiful range of rough cut and polished tanzanites in our unusual December birthstone jewellery. We offer unusual and contemporary tanzanite jewellery designs including bangles, pendants, earrings and rings. Tanzanite looks stunning set in silver to enhance its serene and royal hues.
