More about Tanzanite
Tanzanite was named by famous jewelers Tiffany & Co., because they believed blue zoisite was not an attractive name to consumers. This gemstone is named for the East African country Tanzania where it can be found. Tanzanite is one of the most precious and gorgeous stones offered at Lima Beads. It is absolutely breathtaking! Tanzanite can have sapphire-blue or amethyst-violet coloration depending on the light where it is viewed. The only deposits are in the Mererani Hills area of Tanzania, a less than 10 square mile area near Mount Kilimanjaro.
Tanzanite is violet-blue zoisite. It is a calcium aluminum silicate with small amounts of vanadium, accounting for its unique hues.
Metaphysically, Tanzanite is said to bring forth strength from within. It is now considered an alternative birthstone for December.
