Tanzanite is the blue / purple variety of the mineral Zoisite discovered in the Mererani Hills of Manyara Region in Northern Tanzania in 1967, near the city of Arusha and Mount Kilimanjaro. It is used as a gemstone. Tanzanite is noted for its remarkably strong trichroism, appearing alternately sapphire blue, violet and burgundy depending on crystal orientation. Tanzanite can also appear differently when viewed under alternate lighting conditions. The blues appear more evident when subjected to fluorescent illumination.
Tanzanite is a rare gem! It is found only in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This mineral was named by Tiffany & Co. after Tanzanite - the country in which it was discovered.
