Tanzanite is a beautiful gem found in only 1 location on earth: the Merelani hills of northern Tanzania. Its color ranges from blue to violet, to purple. Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967, and was originally thought to be a sapphire deposit. Tiffany & Co. became interested in this new gem and made a deal to become its main distributor in 1968.
Fun Fact: Tiffany & Co. is actually responsible for naming tanzanite after the country it was discovered in!
