Tanzanite - A thousand times rarer than a diamond!
Tanzanite, now a name is known in most households, carries a unique story compared to most other gemstones. The first tanzanite was found at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in 1967, mere forty-eight years ago, unlike most other gemstones that discovered hundreds of years ago.
Tanzanite is a thousand times rarer than a diamond! It occurs in only one place on earth, a small area of about eight square miles in the Merelani Hills of Tanzania. According to geological estimates, there is enough tanzanite in the ground to only last for another ten years. That may seem like a long time to pick out that special piece for you or your loved ones. The thing to remember is that, with each passing year, the remaining rough will be less, the mining deeper and costlier, and the color and sizes of rough are not the promised, all of which make prices increase.
There is no time better than the present to add tanzanite to your collection. It is a highly valued gemstone that can be passed on and admired by your loved ones for generations to come.
