Part Six: Tanzanite. “The most beautiful blue stone discovered in Tanzania 1968”


Tanzanite is one of the most intriguing and desirable precious gemstones of modern times. It is found in only one place on earth, deep in the foothills of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa. Experts say that the chances of tanzanite being found anywhere else in the world are less than one in a million. Its single source and limited supply mean that tanzanite is at least one thousand times rarer than diamonds.
