The History of Tanzanite
The stone was originally called blue zoisite. This name was thought to be too hard to market due to it sounding very similar to blue suicide, so Tiffany & Co. named it after the country it was discovered. Soon everybody wanted tanzanites and popularity has been rapidly increasing ever since. Now tanzanites can be found being sold by every top jeweller in the world but as supplies dwindle, the prices soar. Now is the time to buy your tanzanite rings. If you want them for their beauty and glamour or simply as a safe but highly profitable investment, get in now before the cost becomes too much.
Tanzanite rings also make the perfect present for that special somebody in your life, show them that you love them by buying them the most beautiful stone on the market and watch their face light up with pure happiness. Stunning tanzanite has that effect on everybody.
Tanzanite has a characteristic known as pleochroic. This essentially means that is shows different colours depending on the viewing angle and light. This shows up beautifully on tanzanite rings as you walk through a room, the refracted light causes the stone to flash deep purples and violets as well as beautiful blues and sometimes even a shimmer of burgundy. To display this characteristic perfectly, gem cutters must take care to orient the gemstone perfectly. When this is done to perfection, the vivid blue of tanzanite can rival the finest sapphires.
