    Ohh tanzanite is such a pretty gemstone. I got a ring recently. It has pink and blue sparkles in the periwinkle blue. In some light the ring looks lighter colored than others, sometimes medium colored. It wasn’t real expensive so it isn’t the reall deep blue of the real expensive cut stone. None the less it is still pretty
