Why should you buy Tanzanite earrings?
Tanzanite embodies an overly captivating bluish-violet hue, which is what makes this jewel so striking and unique.
It is the violet blue to blue violet variety of the mineral zoisite, mined commercially only in one area of the world: the Merelani Hills of Tanzania, which is where it gets its name.
Tanzanite's appearance is influenced greatly by its pleochroism, which is the ability of a gemstone to show different colors when viewed in different crystal directions. Depending on the lighting and the angle of your vision, it may appear as a beautiful blue like sapphire or a vibrant violet like amethyst. Wear your tanzanite earrings and let them capture the natural essence and beauty of light enhancement to experience the trueness of tanzanite.
Tanzanite or blue gemstone?
Initially mistaken for a sapphire, this gemstone was later found to be a part of the zoisite family of minerals. A captivating bluish-violet hue is what makes this jewel so striking and unique. Today it is considered the second most sought-after blue gem in the world, after sapphire.
Considered the 'most beautiful blue stone' to have been discovered in the last 2,000 years, this gem is named after Tanzania, the East African country where it is exclusively mined on Mount Kilomanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
Millions of years in the making, tanzanite jewelry is relatively new to the gemstone-loving world. Discovered in 1967, this gem was instantly prized for its mesmerizing hues and color-changing effect.
The story goes that lightning struck causing the grassland to start on fire which turned the brown zoisite crystals on the surface to blue. Maasai tribesmen found the gem now known as tanzanite. Credit is given to a local Indian tailor named Manuel de Sousa for the discovery of tanzanite.
In the early 1970s Henry Platt, then President of Tiffany & Co., was shown blue zoisite. Feeling the name zoisite would not be appealing enough to women, he christened blue zoisite with the name tanzanite after the country of origin.
