Tanzanite is a variety of the mineral zoisite and is found in only one place on earth, deep in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa. This single source and limited supply makes tanzanite at least one thousand times more rare than diamond. Metaphysically tanzanite is considered to hold the ability to enhance one's kindness, compassion and enlightenment also.
Round faceted tanzanites: light-medium bluish-purple colour, heat-treated, 4.0mm each
A special note on tanzanite colours: Please see the image of the loose tanzanite stones, specifically that there are a variety of hues which are determined by the amount of chromium each stone has. Tanzanite is also a pleochroic gemstone which displays different colours depending on which direction you are viewing, so each stone will display varying combinations of blue and purple. For our collection we have chosen stones that tend to be a light to medium colour with a more purple hue. It is difficult to capture these differences with photography, and therefore our images are a representation of the colour only.
