Tanzanite is one of the very few new gemstones discovered in recent years.
This is a beautiful coloured stone with blue and purple shades, varying from perfectly transparent and vivid tanzanite to mysterious cloudy tanzanite with a powdered indigo colour.
Tanzanite comes from only one place on earth, Tanzania, making it a desirable gemstone, with ever increasing prices over the years.
Tanzanite is a birthstone for December.
