Featured Gem Tanzanite


Lush blue velvet. Rich royal purple. Exotic tanzanite is found in only one place on earth, near majestic Kilimanjaro.

Named for Tanzania, the country where it was discovered in 1967, tanzanite is the blue-to-violet or purple variety of the mineral zoisite. It's become one of the most popular of colored gemstones.

Tiffany & Co. was the company that brought tanzanite to the marketplace back in 1967, so it is a fairly modern discovery. It is the pure blue variety of this zoisite mineral gem that is most prized, but it will change colors depending from which angle you view it. When the gem cutter wants to retain more weight, they’ll include more of the violet blue color from the rough stone when cutting it.
