Welcome to the Tanzanite Diaries
Take a peek at all of the pictures from this week’s episode.
How Tanzanite usually looks coming out of the ground before it has been heated.

After it is heated you can notice the shifts in colors from shades of brown and yellow to violet and blue.
Without any heat treatment this type of Tanzanite will appear violet, blue, and green. We call it Peacock Tanzanite
The saturation of color depends on how large the gem is, the larger it is the more color it displays, and the richer the color is.
Ruby in Zoisite- We said it was a cute elephant!
You can find Tanzanite in only one locale- Tanzania, specifically in the Merelani region where you can also find our Mint Garnet.
