Interesting Facts About Tanzanites......
Tanzanite is a relative newcomer on the gemstone scene, only discovered in 1967 in Northern Tanzania (as yet the only known source). It comes from the mineral zoisite and in its' rough state is usually a reddish brown colour. To get the characteristic blue violet for which it is known, the tanzanite stone is heated to 600 °C.
On the Mohs scale of hardness, it only has a value of between 6.5 to 7 which is why it should be looked after with care. Tanzanite jewelry should never be placed in an ultrasonic bath or cleaned with strongly acidic products.
The name Tanzanite was actually termed by the jewellery company Tiffany, after it was felt its' gem name of "blue zoisite" sounded too much like the English word "suicide".
