Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone. It occurs in only one place in the world. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint of purple, is a wonderful colour.

Thanks to its unusual aura and the help of the New York Jewellers Tiffany & Co., it has rapidly become one of the most coveted gemstones in the world. In 2002, the American Gem Trade Association chose Tanzanite as a December birthstone, the first change to their birthstone list since 1912!
