“The first thing you notice is the color: Deep, vivid blue, with a purplish tinge that dances about the stone as it moves in the light. With its dazzling intensity and complex play of color, Tanzanite boasts a uniquely sensuous appeal. Tanzanite’s rarity and exotic origin are also part of its fascination. This modern gemstone was unknown until 1967, when Massai herdsmen in eastern Africa noticed blue crystals sparkling in the sun. Tanzanite’s dramatic discovery, coupled with its scintillating beauty, caused a worldwide sensation. To date, the world’s only source for the gem remains the hills of northern Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro.
In 2002, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) named Tanzanite an alternative gem to celebrate December births. Massai belief holds that the color blue is both sacred and spiritual and according to folklore, only women blessed with new life have the honor of wearing the revered blue in both beads and fabric. Since the discovery of Tanzanite, Massai chiefs began giving this gem to their wives when a new baby was born. Doing so bestows health and well-being upon the child, ensuring a prosperous life.
This tradition makes Tanzanite a true birth gemstone, a gift given to a mother to celebrate new life, irrespective of the month a child is born in.* Tanzanite is a member of the Zoisite family of gems. Its dual color – brilliant blue with hints of purple – ranges from indigo to violet to lilac to periwinkle. The color dynamic of Tanzanite makes each gem unique; it also means that they are very difficult to match. Bold yet meltingly beautiful, it is a favorite of both men and women.”
