Belonging to the zoisite mineral family, the tanzanite gemstone is a stunning example of the incredible processes that occur in nature. This stone is a relatively new addition to the gemstone family, having been discovered only in the early 1960s. The unique aspect about this stone is that it is mined in just one location: Northern Tanzania. Another interesting thing about the gem is its trichroic nature, meaning that it exhibits three colors - blue, purple, and red - when viewed from different angles.
The deep-hues showcase a richness of color and has been designated as the birthstone for December. It is believed that the tanzanite gemstone also possesses metaphysical properties; it is a symbol of truth, dignity, and longevity. It is also believed to have regenerative powers, and therefore, is often kept around those recovering from an illness.
For those of you looking for a great Christmas or birthday gift for a December-born, or even it’s something for yourself, here are some of our recommendations: -
