Tanzanite — the heart of the ocean

A unique stone from the only deposit on Earth
Blue crystals sparkled and shimmered in the sun.
So, according to legend, tanzanite was found.
In the 70s of the last century, there was a drought in Tanzania. Fiery flames engulfed the mountain slopes, the fire raged for several days. When the fire retreated, after a while, a local resident, Ali Juyawatu, unexpectedly came across a scattering of unusually beautiful stones that lay between the roots of a shrub that was burnt during the fire.
The only tanzanites deposit is only 5 miles long!
The rare mineral is about 500 million years old, according to experts, it was formed many millions of years ago during the collision of two continents along the Great African Rift.

The most complex structure of rocks was formed, and it is here that the tanzanite deposit is located. And such an environment for the formation of the rarest minerals has not developed anywhere else.

The high cost of the mineral is due to its exclusivity and limited deposits because the price of precious crystals is formed not only by the beauty of the stone itself but also by its uniqueness and rarity. Tanzanite has practically no competitors in its limitations.
The tanzanite deposit will dry up in about 10-15 years! Can you imagine how stones will rise in price?
Tanzanite quickly gained popularity
Tanzanite become famous by the Tiffany company
It was Tiffany who gave the stone this romantic name, as the name of the mineral sounds like "suicide" for English-speaking countries. Henry Platt, the great-grandson of Louis Comfort Tiffany, the founder of the jewelry company Tiffany & Co, fell in love with this stone and made it his goal to make tanzanite one of the most coveted jewels on earth. And he succeeded with the help of a very competent and large-scale advertising campaign.

"Stones are exactly the same as the violet eyes of the incredible Taylor" - the bet in the advertising campaign was made on the superstar of the time Elizabeth Taylor. How could you resist this slogan when Hollywood stars were equated with celestials?

Color — the most unique thing about tanzanite
Tanzanite has a trichroism - when you look at it from different sides, you can see deep blue, ultramarine, violet, and purple hues.
Usually, crystals of a brown or greenish hue are mined from the bowels of the earth. In order for tanzanites to acquire a blue color, they are heated to temperatures of the order of six hundred degrees Celsius. In nature, they acquire a similar color after long heating under the sun, or as a result of fires. Natural blue tanzanites are most appreciated, followed by warmed ones.

But almost all tanzanites heat up since it is almost unrealistic to find such a shade in nature - this is the result of accidental cataclysms in nature. Sometimes there are specimens with graphite or ilmenite admixture, which have the effect of "cat's eye".
Tanzanite was the gems, that played the role of "Heart of the Ocean" in the famous film "Titanic", although it could not be there.
