Tanzanite: an exclusive gem

Despite being discovered in the late 1960s, Tanzanite remains the great unknown. It has this name because it is extracted exclusively from the African zone of Tanzania. Tanzanite can be differentiated from other gemstones due to its spectacular bluish color, it could be said that it is a mixture of the violet color of amethyst and sapphire blue.

It has a low hardness of 6.5-7 / 10 MOHS, therefore, it is easier to find it in certain more manipulable jewels such as necklaces or earrings. As for its density, it is between 3.10 and 3.38. The most valuable stones have a value greater than 4.

As it has been discovered relatively recently compared to other gemstones, there are no myths or legends about Tanzanite. However, lately we have been able to hear that it is linked to the Masai culture, due to the intense blue color, which represents a sacred color for said culture. The first jewelry that included this wonderful gem in its collections was the American company Tiffany & Co.

Consequently, the highest sales figures for Tanzanite are in the United States. In Europe it is barely marketed despite being one of the most appreciated gems today. In recent years its price has increased considerably, around 30% since 2003.

It is one of the precious stones that can become more expensive over time due to its exclusivity and difficulty in extracting it. In German Jeweler you will find two exclusive pieces made with Tanzanite, the earrings and the necklace of the Butterfly collection .
