History of Tanzanite
Tanzanite was a secret hidden under the earth, until the year 1967.
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.
This gem is named after Tanzania, the East African country where it is exclusively mined on Mount Kilomanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
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.
