Millions of years in the making, tanzanite gemstones are relatively new to the gemstone-loving world. They were discovered in 1967 in Tanzania and instantly prized for their mesmerizing hues and color-changing effect. Tanzanite gems are deeply rich in color. When treated with heat and cut, tanzanite displays two colors: sapphire blue and deep purple. These colors alternate depending on the viewing angle and lighting conditions. Tanzanite, an alternative birthstone for December, is believed to have mellowing properties, making tanzanite jewelry an amazing way to celebrate a December birthday.
