Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone. It occurs in only
one place worldwide. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint
of purple, is a wonderful colour. Thanks to its unusual
aura and the help of the New York jeweller's Tiffany, it
has rapidly become one of the most coveted gemstones
in the world.
It is named after the East African state of Tanzania, the
only place in the world where it has been found. Africa?
Does anyone think of gemstones when they hear that
name? Well they should, because Africa is a continent
which provides the world with a multitude of truly
magnificent gemstones, like tanzanite for example. On its
discovery in 1967, it was enthusiastically celebrated by
the specialists as the 'gemstone of the 20th century'.
They held their breath in excitement as they caught sight
of the first deep-blue crystals which had been found in
the Merelani Hills near Arusha in the north of Tanzania.
Millions of years ago, metamorphic schists, gneisses and
quartzites formed impressive, flat-topped inselbergs on a
vast plain in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. The precious
crystals grew in deposits on the inside of these unusual
elevations. For a long, long time they were hidden from
the eye of Man, until one day some passing Masai
shepherds noticed some sparkling crystals lying in the
sun and took them along with them.
