Tanzanite - The Perfect Investment for the Future & The Perfect Gift for Your Loved Ones

Tanzanite is one of the world's rarest gemstones - 1,000 times more rare than diamonds; beautiful and unique. We specialise only in the very top quality investment grade, which is the top 1% of stones - the real creme de la creme.

Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 by the Portuguese geologist Manuel D'Souza, who had travelled to Tanzania with the original intention of prospecting for Rubies. It is purported that, when he reached Tanzania, he was led to deposits of this wonderful gemstone by Masai Tribesmen. The Masai's believe that Tanzanite is the 'Stone of Birth', and it is for this reason that they frequently gift their wives with Tanzanite following the birth of their first child. Western cultures are now also adopting this same custom which is fueling the ever-growing demands for this unique and beautiful birthstone.

Due to Tanzanite's rarity and popularity it is now one of the most sought after gemstones in the world, most especially in the USA market which is already up in the region of around $500 million a year. The new up-and-coming markets of China and India are also growing annually, as more and more people in those countries move into new and more affluent positions.

Tanzanite is a member of the Zoisite family of minerals and is made up of Calcium Aluminum Silicate Hydroxide - its chemical makeup being Ca2Al2(SiO4)3(OH).

Birthstone Month: Tanzanite is one of the accepted birthstones for the month of December.
