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!
