Wholesale Gemstones -- Tanzanite

The remarkable gemstone Tanzanite was first discovered in 1962. It is mined in one place only, Tanzania, under the shadow of the snow capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro. It comes in a range of blues, from purplish blue to violetish blue, and is most valued for the violetish or pure blue color. Tanzanite is distinguished by its “pleochroism”, meaning that if you look at the stone from different angles, you are likely to see different shades of purple and blue. Many gemstones are pleochroic, but do not display their pleochroism in such an eye visible and compelling way. Tanzanite tends to be vivid in color and free from inclusions. Tanzanite gemstones are one of the most popular stones today, as they were when they first became known in the market not that long ago.
