Tanzanite is a calcium aluminium hydroxyl silicate and belongs to the silicate family.
It’s also known as Blue Zoisite. It was Tiffany and Co. that renamed it to Tanzanite as a part of a branding strategy.
It was first discovered in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 1967.
Deposits of Tanzanite can be found in the Merelani Hills of Tanzania, but there are also deposits found in Kenya.
Tanzanite exhibits different colors when viewed at different angles, and this makes it a pleochroicstone.
When you look at it in sunlight, Tanzanite will show a blue tone. During later parts of the day, the stone can display purple, yellow, and red hues.
When you look at Tanzanite in candlelight or under the light of an ordinary lightbulb, it will show a nice burgundy color with earthy brownish tones!
