If you are looking for a captivating gemstone to set your ring with, look no further than the tanzanite. It may not be as popular as other gemstones like sapphire, topaz, or opal, but it has a quiet, understated, and subtle beauty to it that sets it apart from the others.
Tanzanite got its name from the place where it was discovered by the gold prospector Manuel de Souza in Tanzania, in 1967. This stone can only be found in Tanzania, and nowhere else. This makes it a rare find.
Jewellery aficionados are also taken in with the tanzanite jewellery's rich colour that can range from a rich violet hue to a deep royal blue. Its colour combines the cool azure depth of sapphire and the purple majesty of amethyst. These two colours can both be seen alternately from the stone depending on two factors: the lighting conditions and the viewing angle.
In the past, the humble tanzanite was considered as a cheaper substitute to sapphire since it has almost the same color. But recent years have shown an increase in the popularity of tanzanite jewellery, which can be attributed to its own brilliance and beauty.
The Mohr hardness scale rates the tanzanite a 6 to 6.5. Although it may not be as hard as diamond, this gemstone can withstand the wear and tear and passing of time, so owning one will make for a great jewellery investment.
How to wear Tanzanite Rings
There are so many ways that a tanzanite can be cut and set to create beautiful jewellery. The four most popular cuts that turn into beautiful tanzanite rings are: oval, trilliant, cushion, and pear-shaped. These cuts are ideal because they have a broad surface that maximises and fully displays the stone's natural trichroism.
