Origin and supply
Most of the tanzanite today is mined from Tanzania, which is the biggest supplier of the stone. The mines there are divided into 4 block from where the rocks are procured; namely Unites “A,” “B,” “C,” and “D.”
About 20 years ago was the first time when the brilliant Green Tanzanite was spotted. With alluring hues and vividly entrancing clarity, it took the gemstone world by storm. Like other tanzanite, it shows a play of colours when viewed from different angles. It also holds the pleochroistic quality like other varieties, meaning that it shows a different shade when viewed in different lights and angles.
What makes the stone special is the red-violet undertone along with a hypnotizing green base colour. Some rare varieties also portray a riveting mix of bluish-green tones as well. That said, it is majorly known for its unique colour play. The colour of the stone might resemble with tourmaline, but there are several other stark differences in the gems.
Specifications and family
The green tanzanite comes from the zoisite family of minerals, so it should be called green zoisite, in the technical manner of speaking. Coming under the fancy-colour tanzanite, the stones remain on 6.5 of the Mohs Scale of hardness. It means that the stones are hard but need care. The score on the scale indicates that while it cannot break easily, it can still sustain scratches and abrasions that will affect its inimitable sparkle. And you certainly do not want that.
