Have you heard about Tanzanite before? This exotic gem is a very pretty blue violet mineral stone. The colour of it mimics two of the most popular gems - sapphire and amethyst, and appears to have different colours when viewed from different angles.

What is Tanzanite?

- Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, East Africa.

Tanzanite is so precious and rare because it is found and mined in a small area in Northern Tanzania.

- It was named Tanzanite after its country of origin (Tanzania) by Tiffany & Co. in 1968.

- It's heated to 500°C to develop its blue colour.

- Tanzanite was declared as the 'December Birthstone' in 2002.

- It's known to have the power to activate and integrate the energies in healing.
