This Tanzanite has natural color that has NOT been treated in any way. Through perhaps the most successful marketing of any stone other than the Diamond, Tanzanite has gained worldwide recognition through the efforts of Tiffany and Company. While the main Zoisite deposit in Tanzania produces quite an array of colors, it is the royal blue that is most sought after. Most Tanzanite is heated to bring out this shade from the more dull & boring color when it comes out of the ground. Natural blue Tanzanite does in fact exist, and will continue to be sought after by collectors and investors for many years to come.
Tanzania is the Gem Capital of East Africa. It never ceases to amaze us! Gems and Crystals of ALL COLORS come year after year from this fantastic locality! Of course, the highly marketed Tanzanite takes first place for fame. Tanzania will always amaze with new tourmaline, the best green garnets on earth, and tri-color change Axinite! Whaaat?! This goes on and on in Tanzania!!
