According to Star Lanka, Tanzanite stone exudes royal appeal and is a beautiful alternative to the fabulous blue sapphire. It is a recommended purchase for all gemstone lovers. Over the past few decades, Tanzanite has acquired worldwide appeal. Tanzanite is the most popular form of the mineral zoisite. It is reddish-brown in its natural state and obtains the amazing deep blue colors after heat treatment.
Thulite and anyolite are other forms of Zoisite. Tanzanite scores between 6 to 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. But, although it is hard, the stone is brittle. It is best used for special occasions where its dazzle and deep color always attracts attention and draws compliments. A soft brush, gentle detergent, and warm water are recommended for cleaning this fantastic gemstone.
Vivid blue Tanzanite is a highly sought-after gemstone. Star Lanka has in its inventory superbly cut Tanzanite stones with the most reflective brilliant blue color. The small amount of vanadium in the gemstone gives it a characteristic blue color. Scientists found that heat treatment can improve the depth and tone of the color. This is achieved by heating Tanzanite to 600 °C for 30 minutes. Rough Tanzanite can weigh hundreds of carats. It is the largest of the faceted forms of zoisite.

Star Lanka said, “As the name suggests, the only known Tanzanite gemstone source is in northern Tanzania. All the gem mines are located in an area around eight square miles big, situated in the Merelani Hills, near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro and the city of Arusha.
Most gemstones have been known and used for centuries; however, Tanzanite was discovered relatively recently, in the late 1960s. In just over 60 years, it has become the second most popular blue colored gemstone, second only to sapphire.
Only a small number of gemstones discovered within the last century have brought strong popularity amongst consumers, and Tanzanite is one of them. This popularity is due, mostly, because of its fantastic blue color, but also because of Tiffany & Co.’s excellent marketing. It is so popular that it was made on the gemstone of December in 2002. It also matches Pantone’s color of the year for Most Popular Gemstone 2020.”
Sharing further information about Tanzanite, Star Lanka said, “Pleochroism is a physical property in which the gemstone will appear to have different colors depending on the light’s angle. Tanzanite stone is a pleochroic gemstone. Most are blue when viewed from one direction but can vary from violet to red when seeing from a different angle. This physical characteristic can complicate the cutting process. The finished color of the gemstone will vary depending on how the table of the stone reflects the light in a rough state.”
