The world’s most sought after gemstones have their own peculiarities and unique aspects, each of which makes them distinct and valuable. Tanzanite’s trichroic nature highlights how it radiates colors, ranging from blue to violet and a hint of red, depending on how you view the gem. That, and the fact that it’s extremely rare and could very well be in short-supply soon, only makes it so much more intriguing.
Top Tanzanite, as a leading mine-to-market brand, is committed to ensure that every customer and connoisseur of this stunning gemstone, understands every facet before making a purchase. In this article, we simplify how tanzanite is graded.
To begin with, - each tanzanite gemstone is graded based on its form, value and uniqueness. This grading is done by following the four Cs -
1 - Color - which talks about its lightness or darkness and how it affects the value of a stone
2 - Clarity - identifies any inclusions present inside a stone, affecting its durability
3 - Cut - determines the gemstone’s overall face-up color; and
4 - Carat weight - which ascertains a gemstone’s weight including its depth.
According to GIA, this grading system is most widely used to get familiar with tanzanite’s distinct components like its -
Hue, that denotes the actual color a human eye perceives;
The Tone that refers to a gemstone’s relative lightness or darkness; and
The Gem’s Saturation that showcases the depth of its color.
